I dont have a choice now about the flutes. I just wanted to try to fix what I have, and no I will not go back to that smith.

I don't want to know who the gunsmith is/was. But, why did you go to this one in the first place? Were you referred by other shooters? Close to home? Where are you located? Are there reputable others in the area?

If you want to post a pic, use a program such as Irfanview (FREE) to reduce size to 800 pixels wide (max) and try to keep file size under 80kb. 150kb is the max allowed. That is plenty big for a jpeg.

Instructions on how to post pictures is contained in the Photo Help file (see button upper right).

Someone asked about a smith that does barrel fluting, Check out the work Karl does. He had some guns at the Worlds Championship Match at South Fork. He does an amazing job. True workmanship at it's finest.

The smith was recommended by many different people. After I got my gun back they all said he use to be very good. It seems everybody once used him but not now (I know why). He has done some small things in the past for me with good results. It seems like hes slipping. If you dont know him locally then you wont know who he is.

Finally got the pics posted, but I had to downsize them so much it might be hard to see.

I've had Karl at Kampfeld Custom flute around 10 barrels in 10 different calibers for me and they all shoot 1/4 to 3/8ths inch groups with trued 700 actions and sleeves added.I've never had any problems of any kind with barrels I've had fluted.

I don't have any pictures and I gave the barrel aweay to somebody on this forum but don't remember the name.
The paint was the stuff they use on radio controlled cars.
