    Ok guys, had a member at the club who had an accident and dented his Perazzi barrel on the concrete today.

    It’s an 18.6 barrel with Briley S-2 thin walls.

    Anyone have any suggestions on if this can be repaired? Does anyone Swedge out dents from the inside?

    I told him that Briley may be able to fix it for him.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks

    Send it to a professional like Briley, Mike Orlen, Phillip. etc. Seen too many local repairs that wound up with more damage than the original and then went to a pro.

    He just needs to make some phone calls and go from there.

    Briley does a great job on barrel repairs. A friend put the wrong choke tube in his Berretta & blew the end open. I thought no way; get another barrel but Briley did their magic, and you can't even tell it happened.

    Brownells has the device to repair this, not cheap, it operates very nicely, if you are really interested I will look up the device for you. I bet phillips has one, give him a call and show him the pic,

    The barrel did not split, but just flaired, and Yes, Briley fixed it with no visible clue it was ever damaged.

    Don't know what they charged, but I'm sure it was far less than a new barrel.
