I damaged my SA Scout Squad barrel and brake and need to replace both. What can I expect from Fulton Armory or Springfield Armory; workmanship, cost, turn time?
Thanks...

Don't know about any costs or times, like blacktail said, that's on you, but I think either one would do a great job for you, I have used both company's and would recommend either.

Of the two go with Fulton and get yourself a NM medium profile barrel. Better yet, wait a month and order a Bula 19.25 NM medium profile barrel and have one of the resident forum smiths do the install (Bula is a Cleveland, OH company BTW). Just a thought!

SAI has a lifetime warranty contact SAI and see what they can do for you. Fulton is fine but be prepared for sticker shock.

It's an SAI and surely they could do what you are wanting without messing it up and as for Fulton speak with them about doing the job on a SAI rifle?? Fulton is quality but a bit pricey and slow turn around, but it will be right when you get it back. Just a suggestion.

If SAI will cover your barrel and flashhider damage under warranty, then let them do the warranty work as they do have a good warranty.

If not, I would go with "leonmckee" recommendation above i.e. -> the BULA Forge 19,25" barrel. They shoot very well and will allow you to service your gas system without pulling your flashhider off your rifle. The length is shorter than the 22" and slightly longer versus the scout at ~18.5" -> the 19.25" is one of my favorite set-ups and the barrels are fantastic for the money.

Good luck either way...

I'd be shocked if SAI covered the repairs for a damaged barrel and muzzle brake unless it was an issue with the parts themselves that caused the problem.

It won't cost anything to find out, though!

Hi,
Ok, I'll say it!

I'm not crazy about SA rifles!

I to would go the BULA route!

I have actually bought 3 of them (barrels) here from members in the PX and they look nice!

A best buy for sure!

Either is fine. SAI is cheaper and has worked for me. Lots more opinions to come but overall it's up to you and I think you will be happy with both, your wallet not so much.

Thanks for the feedback folks, I am shipping it to SA for repair. I am so happy with it, I want it fixed right, and after all they built it.
Someone asked what happened. As embarrassing as it is; I left a laser boresight in while sighting my scope. It speaks to how easily a mistake can happen (been shooting for over 50 years). Split the end of the barrel and distorted the muzzle brake (Looking at a little north of $300.)
