Re: Barrel maker

I'm also thinking that Virgin Valley is probably who you are thinking of but I believe they were located in Utah. The same barrel makers that made all of Virgin Valleys custom barrels opened another custom barrel shop in St. George, Ut. The name of the shop is Match Grade Machine (MGM for short). They purchased all of Virgin Valleys machinery, equipment, reamer board, etc. I have two of their Encore barrels and they are excellent.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.

Re: Barrel maker

Its a shame all these Encore connections are going away. I love my Encore.

I noticed the latest Grice flyer doesnt even have Encore's in it.

Take a kid hunting, it's the future of our sport and the future is now!

We still have Reeder, Bellm, and D&T.... not to mention the big boys, SSK. Keep on shootin' T/C's!

Think twice, shoot once.
