    Default Re: Barrel replacement - new court decision

    I have a licenced p14 action that sorely needs a 404 barrel. Would this legislation make it any easier to accomplish, because I'm told that at the moment it's an impossibility

    Ralph Badenhorst has had a few barrel replacements approved recently, so it is possible

    I've had 2 barrel replacements and caliber changes approved recently via my gunsmith, Trueworx.

    I honestly have no idea. Their admin lady is clued up with the process and had me sign some forms, pay some money for the process and submit to my DFO.
    I then collected the license cards for the barrels, and some more forms were filled in and submitted by them. Once all approvals were done, I had them do the work to my rifles.
    Now I am just waiting for my new cards.

    Thanks. Am I understanding correctly that the entire process except for you collecting the licenses was handled by the gunsmith?

    Thanks. you guys are talking about barrel replacements, I'm talking about fitting a barrel onto an action only that has no barrel fitted yet. Any suggestions?

    This is a new licence application - not a barrel replacement.

    Is the action licenced as an action only? Then the application would be to build a new rifle. Gunsmith and DFO would have to guide you on paperwork. Best bet would be a gunsmith that goes through this process regularly.

    If it's licenced as a rifle, barrel change process applies
