Could someone answer a question for me? I am buying a factory barrel for a model 94 winchester and was wondering if I can just screw a new one on and have it work or does the headspace have to be checked by a gunsmith. I am using the same caliber barrel.
I had a post 64 top eject winchester trapper that I wanted to put a longer barrel on. I purchased a 24" barrel and tube set that must of been off of a model 64 angel eject. The gunsmith had to mill 3 thousands (if I remember right) off of the barrel to get the sights to come up right and then a few thousands off of the tube to get it to fit. He also had to mill a ejector grove in the barrel since the other one was of to the side. It sure made a nice rifle out of it for a total cost of $130.00.
