Where would I go about getting a "New" barrel installed on my S&W mod 13? All I have found online is cannibalized barrels. I realize it is a discontinued revolver. Is a new barrel out of the question or not cost effective if found?

www.brownells.com/ Brownell's has SOME new barrels.
A lot of Pros go here first.
