View Full Version : Criterion 30-06 chrome lined barrels

April 18, 2009, 02:21

I have a Garand I need to rebarrel, was thinking about having Warbird screw in one of the chrome lined Criterion (Krieger) barrels. Anyone have experience with these? Are they good shooting barrels?

Warbird please chime in if you can on the barrels, thanks!

I think the Criterion is the only way to go. I am in the same boat and am in the process of re-barreling one. Both barrels I had, which I thought were good barrels, would not headspace with 20 different bolts. The trick now is finding a crtierion. Midway and Brownells are out of stock.

Well, I have a Criterion 308 chrome lined M1 barrel installed on one of my Garands but, I haven't shot it yet because I've been busy with work.
It headpaced at 1.632
You can call Steve at Criterion & he'll be glad to sell a 308 or 30-06 chromed barrel if he has any available.
