Sorry, no etymologies found.
I did buy a Marlin XL7 tohaul about o my 4wheeler and it shoots almost as good, but the bbl is only 22 "and i don; t expect the same results at 200 yds as the 700 with 24" bbl.
If I can get General Purpose AFRAmax tanker capable of holding 25,000 tons (a bbl is close to 0. 135tons) …. .thats close to 18,000 bbls!
To go back a few more years like the 50's the Rem Sportsman 48 with the recoil bbl is almost jam free.
A lightly oiled cloth of WD-40 down the bbl is ok, providing you shoot a few fouling shots prior to a hunt.
BAck a but, someone sawed off the bbl ofma 338????? that bbl is ruined.
I do argue that a 24 "bbl is by far better than a 22" for western hunting.
Stamped on the bbl is made in JAPAN. But all we buy now comes from other countries, so suppose its ok.
First, the new bbl is much lighter than the orig. 2nd. you may have tightened the screws to tight that holds the stock to the action.
I neve put my guns away till the bbl is swabed down and wiped off, be it at 8PM or Mid-night.
At current levels, the stock is discounting long-term crude prices of USD 85.1/bbl, which is high and leaves no margin of safety.
