Mange, mange tak Lars - that is an excellent article - it is going in my notebook very quickly. Yup, Obermeyer and Krieger pretty much set a standard that others try to attain here in the USA, but old Hans Schultz was there first. Schultz & Larsen gained a reputation very early in the 20th Century for building the finest rifle barrels around. S&L rebarrelled hundreds if not thousands of Danish Krag-Jørgensen, Mauser 98, CG 63, and probably whatever came through the workshop door if it was a rifle. I see the new S&L company advertises the high quality of their barrels and I believe they are using some of the old company's barrel boring machinery, so I hope they keep up the tradition of excellence.

I think I learned something today! I had a couple of interesting observations. First, both Badger Barrels and Boots Obermeyer are my neighbors here in Wisconsin. Second, Husqvarna used the forging technique for their rifles barrels, but I had no idea it is such a modern development. I know they were forging their shotgun barrels well before 1939.

I wonder if I can get Mr. Obermeyer to make me a copy of a lightweight contour Husqvarna barrel in 9.3?

Hey Steve,
If you have a chance to visit Obermeyer's shop I would go for it. I've several of his articles on barrels and the man is really amazing and I think he is still an active competition shooter too.

SDHunter sent this along to complete larsluthor's old post - it is the article that is mentioned above, but that link no longer works, so I'm going to make an attachment of the article as a text file in a ZIP archive file. It is a good article on barrel making, well worth the read. Thanks SDHunter!
