Title: TJs Barrel Liners Current Price List and Carbon Fiber Tube source
Post by: steveoh on February 22, 2019, 02:53:31 PM
I have a project in mind, and am wondering if anyone has a current price list for TJ's barrel liners?

Also, where are folks buying carbon fiber tubes to sleeve barrels with?

Thanks!

I buy Metric sizes on eBay.... Here is his store link....

https://www.ebay.ca/str/HaoZhong-Carbon-Fiber-Tube?_trksid=p2047675.l2563

Tubing is listed by OD, then when you open that section both ID and OD are listed.... You can get Mike at TJ's to make a lot of his liners with a 14mm OD if you ask him to.... He has a sample of 20mm x 14mm tubing from HaoZhong that I sent him, just ask him to make the OD fit that.... Assuming you are getting something that could be made with a 9/16" OD (just over 14mm)…. Mike can just hammer the OD down to fit the tubing ID when he is forging the barrel....

I know you would probably sooner buy in the USA, but I don't know of anyone who makes 9/16" ID tubing.... You could possibly get the liner you need in 1/2" or 5/8" OD of course.... and then get the appropriate sleeve....

Clearwater has 9/16" id.
That's the ebay place I've purchased from.

I got my CF from an outfit in Livermore right off the 580 called ACP Composites.  Reasonable price, made here I believe too, and fit my 25 TJs perfectly after applying the 638.

About TJ's, I haven't seen a price list for quite a while, and even so, I don't think it was actually TJ's, just someone reselling them maybe.
Best way is just to call them.
TJ's Enterprises
3652 Neltner Rd
Alexandria, KY 41001
(859) 635-5560

Also, who are you going to have machine the barrel? When I got my barrel I just had Gaska order it to my specs and machine it.

I have two projects actually.

1. A DAQ .25 barrel and steel breach I will perhaps put on a Crosman 2240. Also chewing on building from Cothran parts a pcp using the DAQ stuff. It has 7/16 barrel and I just like the idea of wrapping in carbon fiber.

2. I have a .257 rifle coming that has a long 9/16” barrel that just looks like it needs stiffening.  I say I have it coming but I am having doubts about the seller dragging his feet. If I don’t get a tracking number by Monday I’ll be canceling. We’ll see.

I’ve looked all over, found this one and others, but it appears they are all outdated.

I’ll call and see if I can’t get a good list. My primary desire was to compare diameters and calibers TJ sells.

That is a airgun only list.... He sells a myriad of PB calibers and twists as well.... The only way to know for sure is to phone Mike and talk to him, there are a LOT of liners (in particular twist rates) that he does not have on his published list.... For instance, he has .224 cal in 9", 12", and 14", and .223" (.22 rimfire) in 16" and 20" twists.... and he has .257 cal in 7", 10" and 14" twists.... In addition, he has a wide latitude of ODs he can supply.... Call and ask !!!!
