Default nef barrel accessory program...

has anyone tried it. i'm thinking about getting the ultra varmint in 22-250 and then sending the frame in to get a 7mm-08 barrel. has anone had any problems with the barrels and is an ffl required to do the shipping?

The program works great,, but it takes from 6--8 weeks.. no FFL required. I have sent in 3-times for different barrels and they all worked great. The NEFs are NOT like a T/C barrel,,,,, the NEFs need to be fitted at the factory.

I had thought about doing it. An owner can ship to a manufacturer and they can ship it back to you the owner.

I sent an older 20 ga frame and had the muzzle loader barrel fitted. Since I wanted the Monte Carlo stock and the ML comes with a different fore arm anyway, I just sent the receiver in a little tiny priority box.

It took about six weeks to get it back and they did a good job and threw in a trigger job as I requested.

There it is. They could not be more helpful, and after the trigger polish, I want to kiss someone it is so accurate!
