    I am of the opinion that SEITZ signed or initialed his barrel work. I am interested in a barrel that has been ported and backbored and otherwise modified by SEITZ but cannot verify who did the work. Appreciate your help.

    Joe...

    Look on the bottom of the monoblock and there should be stamped, in quite small characters, "C.C. Sietz">

    He did that work on my TM-1 back in the mid-80's (0.740" bore, 0.032" choke, his own drilled port pattern, and raised the POI) and I have seen a number of others "signed" with the same stamp. I assume he signed all those he worked on.

    Is there any chance you might be able to post a picture???

    My understanding also, not all of his work was signed...

    I also have a TM1 that Tom did for me. I took it directly to his home when I lived in Oregon. It has no initials or signature stamp either.

    Not all of Tom's work was signed, one thing you could compare is the internal profile of his choke to the one you are looking at, but you would have to have a true Seitz barrel to profile.
