There have been a few discussions concerning WinchesterBarrels.com in the past.  I received one of their barrels recently and tried to do an honest review of the product and experience.  Hope some will find this helpful.  Mark

   Mark, I enjoyed your video, straight and to the point. I have seen their barrels on guns and they do not pass as originals, but as you point out they serve a purpose. I appreciate the time you spend making these. Thanks you.

Great video, was expecting a bit better product from our friends in the sunshine state. Your recent Civil War carbine videos caught my eye, very enjoyable! Would have liked a better shot of that old car you were leaning on at the end of the Morse video.

Here you go, Mike.  That one’s a true one-owner ’57 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser.  Erin’s dad bought it as a teenager when he was going to college.  He’s 86 now.  It was parked inside in 1966 with 75k miles and hasn’t run since.  Erin was considering selling it last year, so I drug it out of the shop and washed it for the first time in over 50 years. She cleaned up pretty nice.  Now if I didn’t have so many guns to fix, I’d try to find the time to get the old girl running again.  Mark

Thanks, Mark. I’d much rather look at old cars than own or work on them. We sometimes do driveline work for restoration projects so I get to enjoy other folks cars now and then.

Hi Mark,

I see the for sale sign in the window.  What is your asking price?

Not to come off rude or Ignorant by any means. This is also my personal view and opinion from facts i have attained.  but  I dont watch youtube or line their pockets for many reasons. One of the main reasons is they are owned by Alphabet inc. which is anti gun. also one of the largest stake holders Larry page has given money to support many anti gun candidates. I can go on about others involved but you get the picture.   so why not post a in-depth description here or in the waca magazine for all to read freely. Thank you.

I understand your thoughts about YouTube.  I’m certainly not of fan either, but that’s where the viewers are.

Sorry Jeremy, but I have so much on my plate that I struggle very much to keep up with all my current commitments.  In addition, Erin and I are in the process of purchasing a gun restoration shop in Cody, Wyoming which will add an enormous additional workload and complexity to our lives.  I’m struggling to find the time to keep up with video production alone.  To produce videos and then duplicate the content in writing for those who are opposed to watching the video content is far beyond the constraints on my time.  Mark

Thank you Mark for your time and reply. I hope you find some time for RR and a cold one.
