Default Need My Damascus barrels evaluated

Does anyone know of someone qualified to evaluate Damascus barrels for shooting near Hickory NC?

From what I understand, the DelGregos have never had anything to do with composite barrels and basically try to not get involved with them.

Please correct me if your experience has been otherwise.

Default you are wrong

I spoke to them they have a agent near by who test/evaluates Damascus Parkers. Mine is on way a 90% GH 16 gauge with 32" Barrels. They have done everything to my many Parkers forb over 40 years.. Jim

I didn't know that Last time (which was a number of years ago) Babe said he would not work on them, only fluid steel. Good to know
