Looking for a Interarms Virginian Dragoon .44 mag barrel

I picked up an Interarms Single Action Virginian Dragoon .44 mag ('76)sometime ago. Just recently when I sent it in to the smith to get it refinished, they found a crack in the barrel near the forcing cone. Does anyone know where I might be able to find a barrel, doesn't matter if it's used or new, as long as it's functional. The Dragoon is a great revolver, sturdy and reliable, and I'd hate to have to hang it up. I appreciate any help anyone can give!

Websites that may also have gun parts:










eBay (go to GUNSURPLUSPARTS, I think)

You might also find a broken or inoperable "parts gun" for sale on one of these websites, which can be cannibalized for the parts you need. You can sell the remaining parts on the internet, or this forum's host. Re-post here if you aren't familiar with purchasing guns across state lines.

Some vendors have a "wish-list" on their web pages....check their site for such a feature and add you wants to it.

Also, try to post on some want ads boards, (gunbroker.com has one as does auctionarms.com) or ask questions at some shooters forums. Search for some here: www.gunshow.net/links.htm

There's other possibilities if you don't have any luck with the above. Re-post here.

If no luck finding a barrel,you can cut the cracked part off.Then remachine the barrel to set it back 1(or as many as needed) threads.

I would look into why it cracked. Is the frame damaged? Before cutting and rethreading, check for a bulge down stream from the forcing cone. a barrel obstruction might have caused enough pressure to bulge as wellas crack the barrel. George M.
