    Replacement barrel

    I'm thinking of picking up a X7 in .223 as a budget build. What barrel do you guys that replaced yours use. Like most places don't have x7 on there list of available barrels. I wanted to get a PAC-NOR or lija in .17-204 for the X7 in .223 with a boyds stock.

    I can't speak for other makers, but McGowan makes a pretty good barrel cut specifically for the Marlin action. I converted a 308 to 358 Win a while back and have been very happy with the result. Savage barrels can also work with little effort. Any specific reason you want a PAC-NOR?

    Pac-Nor will also build a barrel with the breach cut for the marlin . I have used everything from Shaw to Benchmark on the X Gun's Hope this helps DD

    Thanks DD

    I checked out McGowan they don't offer a 9 twist .17 other wise I woulda jumped at that one there prices seemed good.

    I might in the future also change my .243 over once shot out or tired of it. Thinking .22-243 or another .243 heavy barrel heavy stock long range woodchuck cutting machine.

    "just this morning sent my barrel and action off to Weavers to get made into a .17-.204R. Can hardly wait. I went with a Pac-Nor .17 cal. 3 groove 9 twist #2 contour barrel and am putting it on a Ruger Ultra Light action I had in the cabinet."
    Wildcat, right? Are you looking for a drop in? Prefit? Contoured blank? I priced out a McGowan 6BR SS ($230), varmint contour ($30), Crown ($35), Threaded to Rcvr ($60), Chamber $72). Total $427. Plus shipping, wrench and guages. The barrel websites are very confusing to me, see drop ins for $299 or so. Dig deeper and more costs. Wildcat, probably extra. You get a stock at $100, you have $900+ in the budget rifle. Maybe JayHawk or someone else can correct my figures or my take on this.
