Rick, I feel your pain. You didn't say if the 210 dollar barrel is finished & chambered or not. Actually a good blank turned but not finished & no chamber at 210 dollars is a pretty good deal any more. If it's chambered & threaded, it's a steal. The last barrel blank I bought from Douglas was very close to 300 dollars with no chambering or threading. That was a few years ago & I still haven't done anything with it. My friend, Chic Donalley died several years ago & I have no idea who bought his barrel making business. His business was in Grant's Pass too. He bought Ackley's barrel making business & worked for Ackley at one time. Last time I talked with his wife, she didn't mention selling the business but he had been dead only a few days & it was no time to be asking questions like that. Any more if I want a new barrel I call Douglas & talk to Stan Taylor & tell him my needs & pay the price & cry & complain. .Paul H
