Looking for a nearby Gunsmith that can turn/machine a barrel. I have a German G/K43 that needs a barrel. Anyone that knows anything about these rifles knows that barrels are next to impossible to find. A k98 barrel can be machined to fit if the threads are machined off and machined to the right thickness. I will have the proper thickness to machine to from one of my other G/K43's I could also go the route of using a barrel blank in 8mm as well. The G/K43 barrel is pressed into the receiver and not screwed in like a K98. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
