Re: Thread Protector

Hey Delta,

Any local machine shop could make one for you that mated up nicely to your weapon in 5-10 minutes, also would be super cheap...

Re: Thread Protector

The end of the barrel (I just got one) is 0.860. I put an EGW thread protector on mine and it looks OK. The diameter of that one starts at 0.870 and the knurling expands out to 0.960. If you check Savage’s web site they now offer a brush/ “pig” gun that I think uses this barrel with this thread protector.

Re: Thread Protector

Criterion>Shaw, However My first ER Shaw barrel is a .243 bull that has been knocking out .4 MOA 5 round gouups at 100 lately and the .308 I just got looks like it will do good as well.

From what I have read on the inter web from reviews Criterion is a mid priced barrel that will shot well (if not very good) where as an ER Shaw is a low cost barrel that MAY shot well
