Here is the reply from Larry Potterfield to my question.

Under the terms of our contract, I am not allowed to reveal which major American barrel maker makes these for us. The Adams and Bennett brand was created a number of years ago to help us sell more Fajen stocks. With a reasonable price upgrade, we were looking to get more people involved in my passion, hobby gunsmithing. The line has been a great seller for us ever since. I am confident you will be happy with the performance of the barrels, and urge you to read some of the customer reviews on the website. We only edit them for foul language and the like, so if a review is bad it still gets posted. I think you will like what you see.



Thanks For Your Business,

It's hard for me to believe that the identity of the makers of A&B can/has been kept secret for all the time they have been in business. Must be a black op funded by the CIA.

I've only had one A&B barrel, accuracy was fine, the bore was rough and I just gave up on trying to clean it to bare metal. The gun was not only accurate, but accurate clean or after many rounds down the tube.

I haven't heard of any accuracy problems with A&B barrels when installed by someone who knows what he is doing.

I have had good luck with the A&B Savage barrels, but only so/so luck with the A&B Mauser barrels.

I quite agree! I can't believe that after all this time, the maker has been kept as closely guarded as the Natioal Trueasure. grin

One would think that some employee of either company, either the manufacurer or maker, would tell his buddy or B-I-L, and word would eventually get out. (I mean; after all, they are not delivered by a nondescript, black truck in the dead of night...)

If, indeed, they are NOT 2nds, then I can see why the manufacturer doesn't want the word out... He would likely lose a large part of his higher priced sales... But for Pete's sakes! All Larry Potterfield has to say is: "We buy our barrels from XYZ that are manufactured to our specifications". Personally, I'd rather Know just who's product I'm buying....
