Post About c custom barrels for SAVAGE 220

This is stupid question.

Nice to meet you all.

I am desperately looking for a custom barrel for my savage220.(other than a tur hunt)

In Japan, hunters with less than 10 years experience cannot legally own a rifle.

So what do I do?

Young hunters use a "SLUG GUN with the rifling crudely shaved halfway down the barrel"!
But the accuracy is terrible.

Have you ever seen a highly accurate custom barrel with rifling on only half of the barrel?
I'm trying to get an accurate half rifle barrel.

It's my understanding that the Sav220 is already fitted with a very fine shooting 20 gauge slug barrel. Nor have I ever heard of a Savage barrel only having half it's barrel length rifled.

Nice to meet you Hunter Life !

I agree very much.
Savage220 is fitted with a very good slug barrel.

However, Sav220s imported to Japan have half of their rifling shaved off. In a factory with poor accuracy in Japan.
This is very silly.

I want an accurate half-life ring barrel anyway!

I've never heard of this website before!
I'll inquire if I can order a 20GA SLUG barrel ASAP!

Thank you so much

Mamiya cat welcome to the forum.

Can you not purchase a rifled slug barrel for a shotgun. They shoot a shotgun slug that has a sabot and the accuracy is pretty decent for approx 100 yds..

Muskyhunter1, nice to meet you!
Thanks for your comment.

Yes ... I also used a Rem870 20GA Japanese half rifle barrel.
However, the accuracy was 6 to 8 inches at 100 yards...
Could be a problem with Japanese barrel machining techniques...

Is it easier to find a custom barrel on a Rem870 than on a SAV220?
