    30 years ago, GR barrels were considered among the very best being produced at the time.

    Can't tell you much about what happened after that.

    I did an archive search on the American Longrifles Bulletin Board and came up with some interesting info. & excerpts about the Green River Rifle Works & their barrels.

    Someone who worked there making many hawken rifles said the GRRW Bridger Hawken was as authentic as any hawken made.

    The company closed up their business about 1984 and they were located in Roosevelt, Utah.

    They made high quality cut rifled barrels.

    Note: The Australian Co. still assembles guns using Green River parts from where ever they can find them, but doesn't make the barrels.


    The posts below are about someone inquiring about the value of a used GRRW Leman Trade Rifle and some responses:
