I have a bartlien the are excellent. Liljas are also excellent. However my best shooting rifle is a Remington with a Mike Rock 18” m40 taper, 5R stainless 30 cal. I would also consider them as well.Does anyone have any opinions on Lilja barrels and how they compare to bartlein barrels? Or is there no real significant difference? Thanks
Not sure it was bad luck. I had a terrible experience with a 6.5 Grendel Barrel from Lilja. The gas port had a burr protruding in the bore and there was surface rust in the extension and on the outside of the barrel. The owner gave me a really hard time, claiming this was "normal" from storage and that the burr would go away after shooting (I couldn't get it with a bore brush). After an extended email exchange he finally agreed to take it back and refund my money. I'd never buy another barrel from Lilja based on that experience. Way to many other good barrel makers out there. I have had nothing but good experiences with the Bartleins and Proofs I've used.I have had Several dozen barrels of many top makes fitted by top smiths. In that time I have had two that shot substandard. The only two Lilja’s I tried.
I received poor CS on both.
Might have been bad luck.
