I started to get on the forum a few hours ago, and then the tornado siren went off, so I headed to the storm cellar. I got out of the storm cellar about an hour ago. That is one good thing about town spreading out towards the country, I have a tornado warning siren. I took a look at the .17 caliber barrel that Green Mountain has, that's a bargain. It's kind of short though.
I've got something that you might be interested in. Years ago, my brother-in-law conned me in to helping him build a .17 like mine. In other words, he wanted me to build him a rifle. It's still in my gunsafe, waiting to be rescued and finished. it is built on a 591 Remington 5mm action like mine is and is in .17 Cal Mashburn. It is inletted in a varmint style stock(nice job of work). The stock still needs a lot of wood taken off the outside. It has been test fired. The barrel is A Shilen. I bought a unturned blank and turned it to the same size as the receiver with no taper. It hasn't been touched in years. I have several of his projects that I did the work on setting around here. He might possibly sell it to me but he would probably try con me into doing more work other that taking money. If your interested I'll approach him on the subject.
I also have more of the 591 Remington actions laying around here waiting on something to do and also the Falling block works single shot action. I like to trade, I just spend money when I get paid in cash.
