    I'm sure making a lug would be interesting and most likely a challenge, but what a lot of the old timers did was take a cast off barrel and cut the breech end off with the lug, then bore it out to receive a shank you've turned on the new barrel. Loctite them together and then put your new chamber in. That's how Vern Juenke was making .17 TC barrels before TC ever offered them. I have a couple Contenders he worked on and they are really great.

    Pay no attention to the nit-pickers over semantics. There's a variety of minor differences in the barrel lug over the years, but I think I drew something up a while back, on paper, mind you. I can't remember if I dimensioned it or not. I'll get back to you.

    Are Contender barrels, by themselves, an ITAR item or are there other issues with the UK/importation?
