A good friend of mine bought a new vleh less than a month ago and we shot it together and the accuracy was nice. I was really liking the hammer forged barrel and his plan was to buy a tactical solutions barrel and sell me the hammer forged barrel. He tried to remove this barrel to install his new barrel and he and his buddy clamped it in a rubber jaw vice and beat on the chamber face with a punch to try to dislodge it. He claims the barrel is stuck and will not come free. Unfortunately I wasn't there to help and I fear they have damaged the chamber creating inconsistent headspace. I think I can put it back in a vice and use a wrench to spin the barrel free. He wants to trade me even for my stripped receiver which is clean as a whistle. Should I trade even or Remove his damged barrel and give his receiver back? Do you think if I took a tiny bit off the chamber face with fine grit sandpaper and polished it the vleh barrel would function or is this barrel trashed due to headspace problems? Would ruger sell me a me vleh barrel and how much? Help!
