Thread Title: "Identification of rifle barrel shank/thread"
jimthompson502002 A retired friend of mine picked up some rifle barrels--3, to be exact--which were sold to him as Remington 700. To oversimplify a complex story, we finally realized they aren't for the standard 700. No markings, they're carbon steel. Shank is about 1" deep total, almost precisely 1" across, and thread appear to be about 16 t.p.i. I looked in DeHaas books, and nothing really conforms to those dimensions. Any idea?

jimthompson502002 Wanted to also mention: no provisions for a barrel extension or sight or gas port, or any other clues to type of rifle this was intended for. Nor is there an extractor cut. There are 3 in all so far. I say "so far" since Larry has tons of things squirreled away, and there exists a possibility they MAY show up. Also: Barrels are in a variety of profiles and weights. Ideas? Possibilities? Parenthetically, these are new, unfired, and in the white. Also, my edition of de Haas is from the early 70's, so a lot of newer items either aren't in there, or are minimally covered.

jimthompson502002 I have a strange feeling this is for another model Remington, perhaps a 720 series...anyone know?

(no avatar) Jim- Those are the same dimensions of the Sako med. size action barrels of the 60s 70s and 80s. Possibly beyond that. I gave my Dehaas book away to a friend but I am certain about those being Sako specs. I also think that there are others that are 1" dia. 16tpi but I can't remember without the book. Are there any proof marks on them? Mike

jimthompson502002 Not a thing except caliber notations... .338, .243, and .22/.250. I have a really ancient deHaas, which may account for my not finding this.

(no avatar) I've got the '03 de Hass in front of me. The Sako L-579 has a 1" dia. & .870 shank. Early model L-61; 1" dia. & does not state shank length. Ruger 77 has .998" dia. & .690 shank. Also Winchester 54 and pre-64 70 have 1" dia. & .740 shank. Remington 721, 722, & 725 have 1.050" dia. & .885 shank. All above have 16 V T.P.I. Hope this helps. I'm guessing from the caliber markings that your barrels are chambered?

jimthompson502002 I think it's the old Sako. The specs were written next to a drawing of a newer version, and I overlooked it, but it seems absolutely identical. Thanks. If anyone knows better, though, let me know. I have advised Larry.

jimthompson502002 Larry said: "Whatever action it is, I don't have one! Sell 'em!" So I listed them, all 3. I think the Sako is what it is/was. They're here on AA.

(no avatar) Jim- I can't seem to locate the barrels. Do you have an auction number so I can see them? Mike
