I was just wondering if anyone here knows if something has happened to Jim Briggs of Northland Shooting Supply out of Minn.
A close friend of mine bought a pre-chamber replacement Shilen Barrel from Jim for his Model 12 F-Class Savage. Upon recieving the barrel, its found that the barrel will not work, as its throated way to short.The barrel was advertisied as a factory replacement...just screw on, headspace with nut, and shoot..
After more than 3 weeks and numberous calls, we can't reach anyone or get any returned calls. I hope that everything is ok with Jim, but by the same token, this is not good business of being unreachable after the sale, and not returning calls.
If anyone know of Jim or can help us in reaching him, please drop me a private email. I'm sure there is a break down somewhere here, as many people have said good things about him ...That's the reason for buying from him..
Thanks in advacned...

I believe he's out West hunting Elk for about 7 to 10 days.

Jim was also moving his shop to a new location in the past few weeks and has all new contact info. I dont know if he just moved his shop or his residence also. I'll see if I can get the new info.
I highly doubt he is avoiding you in any way. Ive talked to Jim several times and had many dealings with him and he has always been an honest and professional person.
All in all, if your barrel is throated wrong you may want to contact Shilen directly since they made the barrel. I'm sure if they agree you have a defective barrel they will take care of it.

I'd have to second the notion of Jim being a stand up guy. My interaction with him was excellent. I know that he will rectify the situation when he is available.
