Should your action require that the bolt face be opened to accept magnum head diameter cartridges, there will be an additional $50.00 charge. DOUGLAS BARRELS DO NOT INSTALL SIGHTS OR MAKE ALTERATIONS TO THE MAGAZINE to insure the cartridge feeding. This is your responsibility. Should you wish an old barrel to be duplicated, Douglas Barrels can probably do this for you, depending on barrel shape wished. Price is an additional $50.00 net charge.
We cannot guarantee we will not scratch the blue on your action. Every effort is made to prevent this, but it sometimes happens.
Run 2 or 3 wet patches with a good bore cleaner through the barrel. Then use a brass brush and wet patch again. When sighting in, clean every 10-15 shots. Always leave cleaner in bore when you are finished shooting. This will dissolve fouling left in barrel. The barrel should be thoroughly dried before shooting. If Sweets is used, do not leave in barrel more than 5 minutes. Do not mix Sweets with any other cleaner.
Do not use stainless steel brushes or abrasive cleaners in barrel.
