    John, send it to Tom Wilkinson in Oxford North Carolina. He'll do you a nice job. Hope this helps, Roy

    If you are seriously contemplating the trouble and expense of barrel work, have you considered installing tubes? That way you can have whatever amount of constriction you choose.

    The point of impact is a separate issue but it would also be possible to have it lowered by the angle and manner the choke tube threads were cut.

    John I live a hour from Kerry Allor and have taken barrel work to him. He is very good like above post stated. When I took my K80 barrel to him he told me he would not open the choke. It would be best to call him and see what he says about opening your choke if you decide on his service. Jerry in MI.

    Barrel work is not cheap neither is an adjustable comb especially if those dont fix your problems. My suggestion is do what your debating about sell it off and put the money you were going to use for barrel work and other things and put it all towards a gun you shoot good from the start. Just my thoughts Kirk

    Doug Braker (Dougs Gunshop) opened my 90-T to what you are asking. He does great work and is very reasonable.
