Used barrel on it's way!
« on: January 12, 2022, 07:53:56 AM »
Well I finally found a replacement 30-30 barrel for my 219 project and hopefully will be installing it this weekend.

Initially I bought a complete 219 through an online auction only to find the mount lug was broken at the ejector hook roll pin area.

It has a Chicopee barrel, and the one I just purchased is a Utica. Will they interchange?

I have taken some photos on the receiver and the barrel it came with originally and I am wondering if they are a matching assembly?

It looks as if they are.

If so I will eventually have the barrel repaired so as to keep it all original.

Here are the photos.

Congratulations on finding a new barrel!  Yes, the damaged barrel does match the receiver.  You can also check under the butt plate and these same or similar letters will be stamped into the wood if the stock has not been shortened. 

If your existing action has a striker (only one hole in the frame) then the Utica barrel will be fine, if it fits.  Sometime ago, I purchased a .219 Zipper chambered Utica barrel and had to try it on 4 actions before I found one that would properly fit.  Good luck.

Please keep us posted on your project!

Stock numbers match as well, unfortunatly the tang and scallop area is really cracked up and missing portions.

I do have an aftermarket one for it that I purchased through Numrich, but it will need some wood working to fit properly.

Barrel should be at my door today, hopefully it fits.

Next move will be to decide what finish I want to put on the receiver.

This is turning into a spendy little project ;D

Once you have the new stock fitted, I would recommend glass bedding it, to prevent cracks in the future.  Cracked stocks and hard trigger pulls are a fault in this design.  Please keep us posted.
