McGowan Barrels

Postby Marauder 1 » Tue Jan 24, 2012 10:54 am

As always I'm always out searching to bring you guys information and services that we may need as a Mosin Modder. Today I found another source for a barrel blanks, McGowan Barrels. I currently have an email out to them for the charges for setting one of these barrels up for a Mosin Nagant. I've also invited them to stop in and check us out. Here is the barrel I found on there site. (hey DD here is your Finn .310 barrel)

Price $155.00
Available in various contours up to 30" finished length. This price is for an uncontoured (not turned) blank. (please note that anything over 26" finished length adds an additional charge)

(Total cost of contoured blank is the blank price + $30.00, unless it is a contour that is not listed on our contour page, then it is an additional $35.00 for programming)

McGowan Barrels rocks. Great find. The prices are right-on and the services can get you a Mosin replacement barrel very easily. Hey DevilDog, just think, a 1 1/4" barrel with no contour and just the threading. Maxi Bull Barrel

This would also open up another possibility, A Mosin Nagant chambered for 7.62x39. Not that I would but wow just think about it.

I'm hoping that the machining for the treads and such won't be to high I just want a straight bull barrel, chambered 7.62x54R and notched for the extractor.

Hello from Afghanistan! I am in the process of starting my own Mosin project and gathering materials at the time. Would the this company make a drop in barrel to your specs? Just curious if anyone has every used their barrel before? Thanks!

Welcome Jeremy:
While I've never used a McGowan barrel on a project yet, I think they will be a big part of a build in the future for me. I've chatted with the folks at McGowan with the same question they stated to me that while they can do the chamber and the proper threading they cannot do the head spacing and extractor grove with out having the rifle there. They recommend taking the barrel to a gunsmith and having it installed. I would also recommend this as well since the extractor and head spacing are critical to safe rifle operation.

Hope that helps and welcome to the board. Hey feel free to introduce yourself in the intros forum. You'll find the group of folk we have here are like a bunch of friends.

We don't have a local gunsmith in my area that would do this. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I can run it by my guy, since he recently did my TGI barrel, he is already familiar with the issues at hand:

PM me if you would like me to speak with him, or you can just call and ask for Roger.

I will definitely ask him! He loves 'projects' as he puts it, but is the kind of guy you would want to talk things over with before you act (those Marines :roll: )

Update: Roger is cool with any good projects you want to throw his way!
