This required multiple iterative passes of a cutting head for each groove (at first this was done with a "scrape cutter", and later a "hook cutter").
) We are also hearing worrying stories that some of the .44 calibre Marlins which are currently being manufactured are still showing a number of problems.
We have seen one here with the rifling deeper on one side of the bore than the other and a fellow dealer had one returned to them as it was putting bullets through the target sideways!
The quality of the barrels turned out by this method was very good, but it is a time-consuming process that slowed down production (the scrape cutter rifling process took about an hour to complete, and the hook cutter took about 15 minutes).
