I have for sale a custom .404 Jeffery barrel for the Blaser R8. I got it in the white from Elmer Laitala just before he retired, and sent it to Jim Brockman for sights, recessed muzzle crown and finishing. It is 24”, 14 twist, 17mm at the muzzle. Sights are zeroed at 50 yards. The contour is slightly heavier than Blaser standard. In my Professional stock, the barrel is in contact with the fore stock, not free float. This does not affect accuracy as you can see from the test targets. There is a small ding at the muzzle, not near the crown; can be seen in one of the pics. Included is the correct Blaser magazine insert and Blaser “UM” bolt head. $1300. PayPal discreet preferred. I also have 10 or so boxes of .404 ammo I’ll be posting here in a few days, but want to give dibs to the buyer of the barrel; buyer will get a discount on ammo.

Of course this shows up when I have a lot of house repairs to do! (Who doesn’t!)
Best of luck with your sale!

Safe to use with aluminum action (Luxes) and is a steal receiver needed?

As Tra3 says, aluminum is fine. What steel gives you is extra weight. I used a Kickstop with this barrel. Good balance and reduced recoil.

Just looked at the targets - which manufacturer is the 400 gr TSX? Couldn't tell from the boxes.

How are you going to live with the misspelled "Jeffrey". Kind of like misspelling your mom's name on a tattoo. Lol! Just messing with you. Nice barrel!

OMG - Had not noticed that ......... :oops: !! I suppose a line through would be inappropriate. :unsure: Hopefully the barrel maker was better at his trade than his spelling.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
