Advice needed;

Got a ring in my .357 barrel; new model. Would like to replace it even though it shoots okay. You can barely see it. Browning/ Winchester won’t replace it. Does anyone know of anyone that has replacement barrels for reasonable price. 20” round barrel for carbine?

Hope someone out there knows something!

Did it shoot better before? If it shoots OK I wouldn’t bother. From what I hear they aren’t exactly tack drivers, just a lot of fun to shoot.

Really can’t tell the difference. I measured the ring @ about 8 thousands. I’m 68 & my eyes are not what they used to be so I put a tang sight on it. Really helped but trying to keep 5 rounds in a 50 yd. bullseye is a challenge! From a lead sled. 

The reason why I want to buy another barrel is I know they won’t get any cheaper & I’m a perfectionist I guess. But I’ve heard different opinions on ringed barrels. Some say they are safe some not so safe. Needless to say I’m used 38 specials now & find them adequate. Probably won’t hunt with it

Finding a barrel may be an adventure. As long as the rifle is never again fired with an obstruction it is PROBABLY safe with 38Spl level loads. OTOH with .357 loads and an obstructed barrel your safety margin is likely gone and the barrel could fail. Obstructed barrels happen even when we think we’re being careful. Personally I’d shoot it with .38’s but don’t construe that as advice. As always, it’s your call.

Model 94AE?

Contact Midwest Gunworks; they show 20-inch barrels in stock.

You may want to use softer bullets in the future.  Sometime the older shotguns ring the barrel right where the choke starts if you use steel shot.  I know there is not a choke in a rifle but something caused an over pressure at the spot of the ring.  A squib round may do this?
