    Who can thread a VTR "triangle barrel"

    I have a Remington 700 VTR and wasn't sure if you could thread the barrel or not. I managed to find pictures of one that was done on google, Could only find one though. It may be a 223 or something and mine is a .308
    Do you guys think it is doable?
    Any one know of a company trust worthy of performing such a task? hopefully also a thread protector similar to the one pictured.

    Anybody who threads barrels would be able to thread that, it may just cost a bit more. Timing the threads to the barrel protector would be where they would charge a lot more. Most people use a crush washer, but to get a flush mount like that takes some extra math that most people wouldn't want to mess with.

    Agree, its really no differant to thread than anything else, just need to make an interupted cut for a period of time which can be hard on tooling. Otherwise its the same old same old.
    I wouldnt expect that thread protector to be as cheap as others though.

    IF my lath were back together yet i would have been happy to help.

    I've seen IT&D thread both triangles and octagons. I don't know if they timed the thread protector but I know they can.

    Their rifle smithing is top notch, best I've used in the Midwest.

    Triangle stock centers up nicely in a 3 jaw chuck.

    Thanks for all the info!
    Will I have to take the barrel off of the receiver to have it done?
    Any one know about how much I should pay?
    Am I correct in thinking that it will not have to be reblued or anything?

    Should not have to remove it, should not have to have it reblued. anywhere close to 100 for the threading, thread protector is hard for me to quote out since i dont know what all it will entail.

    Not hard to thread at all. Even the thread cap would be rather elementary. Unfortunately I can't do this for you at work.
