Barrel FittingShort answer? Yes!
- Depending on the quality/grade of the components, the cost of shipping, parts, and labor may exceed the cost of a new shotgun. This service is recommended primarily for repairs, rather than elective services In the latter case, we recommend the purchase of a new shotgun. However, this is customer discretion.
- If you wish to have a different barrel configuration (e.g. Trap to Sporting) fit to your firearm, be advised, it may imply the need for a replacement stock and forend set, as the rib of a barrel is designed around an intended purpose, as are the stock and forend set. For instance, a Trap barrel requires a Monte Carlo stock, rather than a Sporting grade stock. As such, service costs will exceed the cost of a new firearm, and we recommend that a new shotgun be purchased, one designed for it's intended purpose.
- Should stock/forend sets need to be installed, they too require professional fitting.
- Average barrel cost $1,000-$1,500
- Average stock and forend set cost: $700-$1500
- Average cost per fitting: $250
- This will vary based on model, for instance, DT11 components are much more expensive
