I am wanting to build a budget rifle (well, a few of them, one in a pistol caliber), so i really don't want to pay for a match grade barrel, then chambering, ect. The rifles don't really need it. Does anyone know where i can get a non "match grade" barrel blank, something like what the major manufactures use in OEM rifles? A few different calibers.

Thanks,
Neal

Here's some barrel blanks that you can thread and chamber to your specs.
