    I have 2 40X rimfire custom rifles with PT&G bolts. The walnut for the stocks came from Roger Vardy in Australia. One has an 8 groove Shilen and the other has an 8 groove Bartlein with LH twist and gain twisted.

    Custom Shop Barrel

    When the Custom Shop rebarrelled my 22/250 in 2009, they advised that they were not making .204 and smaller barrels in the Custom Shop. As an alternative, they offered a Shilen. That is what it got. Perhaps they used different vendors at different times in addition to making their own in the CS.

    I think Shilen is doing the 17 and 20s on the mod7 and 700 also.

    Trying to remember my barrel making history...didn't Mike Walker come up with the carbide button and the button rifling process and teach it to Clyde Hart?

    I could swear I read that Remington made their own button rifled barrels for the 40X's, except, as noted, for using some Harts here and there.

    I think that you are right about this in the olden days.
