Browning deer barrel - year late and many dollars short

1 post in this topic

For a few years now, I've been the proud owner of a Gold Hunter 3.5 that I use for turkey hunting. I've been wanting to put a cantilevered rifled barrel on the thing for years, but have balked at the near $400 factory cantilever rifled barrel for the same amount of time.

This year, I saw that the price went from $385 to $265 at Cabelas, even though i've been told "go ahead and order it, that doesn't mean it will ever come in."

The price drop I'm sure has to do with the latest competition, American barrel, who now sells cantilever rifled barrels for both the Gold Hunter and Super X2 3.5. All for $200. It may be like the Ithaca replacement barrels of the not-so-distant past, that fit with varying degrees of success, but I thought I'd post this, so others with the same quandry would know there's an option out there!

I ended up buying a new stoeger last year to accomplish the same task, and while it's nice having yet another shotgun, saving the extra $$ would've been nice as well.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share

      I found some ice!!! Not exactly much, and there are swans in the picture indecating open water too. But it's a start.
