Re: Joint check barrels
Well after some help from a fellow member I found a set of barrels that will work without any hand fitting. I am unsure of grade that these came off of but do have the silver rib inlay. They are not stamped with the grade but must be from a graded gun as they have the fine metal inlay as well as royal steel. These barrels will need to have serial number corrected as well as engraving cut. These barrels lack any engraving around the breach as well as the rib extension. My other grade 3's as well as grade 2's have a border around the tubes on the breach end as well as rib extension. Is there a standard pattern which it should have as all I'm going off of is my other guns in similar grades. I was also told that the grade 3's had gold inlay at the ribs but all I have seen is silver.
