So let me get this straight. The NEW ban will now be on barrels?
Well is someone going to get rich quick in the US and gear up and make barrels?? I hope they can do it cheap enough so it isnt't that big of a deal for the consumer.

I would like to think that if the barrels will be made in the US there will be a variety of styles that we could experiment with.

But on the other hand I am new in the industry so I may just be ignant on the real way things work in this industry.

The highest profit with the smallest investment is how every thing works now. They will be very high quality and high price or they will be worse than a Romanian one and still a little more expensive would be my guess.

What's poor quality about a Romanian barrel? I wasn't aware that they used substandard metal or forging for their barrels. I do know that in general, the Romanians did a better job at hard chroming their barrels than the Poles did.

it would be easiest, I do believe, to take old GI barrles 3006, 308, etc, and rechamber them, and lathe them down to the correct diameter. This is within the realm of the average gunsmith. making a barrel from scratch is not. And from the prices I ahve seen, old military barrels are cheaper than brand new barrel blank. (correct me if I'm wrong)

And drilling a gas port is no big deal. install the gas block, and drill.

That's true. Unless you are talking about a Ruger 7.62x39.
