In the other thread on the liners, with the link to Tanks, it says theirs are made of steel, and require milling the front of the receivers legs. I'm not up on the history but I'm understanding that the first liners were designed by Brookfield Precision, is that correct? And the originals are steel, correct? Did the originals require the mill work to the receivers legs? If anyone's got an original to supply accurate measurements from, I don't think that these would be very difficult to reproduce. The one pictured in this thread is aluminum, if they were manufactured from that, they could be produced at a lower cost, and could be offered for a lower price.

Brookfield liners are made of steel and the legs are required to be fitted to the liner. Tanks was working on the project back in the day so he has the knowledge to build these. He however doesn't unless he is building your rifle, seems reasonable.

ShootingSight has been working on like idea, and has them ready for sale. You will have to figure how to install and that can be tricky without the installation tool.

Your rifle will end up looking like Toki's with the cuts across the heel of the stock, this was done to align the liner when bedding and before the install tool was developed.


I too would like to have another New G.Barnett med. weight barrel, hey it's fun to dream.

I wasn't aware of the controversy surrounding these. I have no interest in making "counterfit" parts, just interested in any techniques that can be employed to make these rifles more accurate. Seems as though it out to be possible to make a liner that could be visually differentiated from the originals while still installed in the stock.

The original tooling still exists. BPT still exists. If you ask Mitch, he may tell you that he still exists.

Last I heard he reflected on the meaning of retirement and declined... Has he reconsidered?

I'm pretty sure that would be possible.
