Default Lyman , Invest Arms

I replaced a barrel on a 54 cal Lyman Great Plains rifle . In the past on my Lyman barrels the date of mfg was the typical 2 letter code ,only it was in the underside of the barrel . Looks like that has changed .

That is really different. Where did you find the barrel to purchase?

That's a first for any company so far as I know. It sure beats date codes.
