Are Extra Barrels Available?

The Japanese factory closed operations in 2009, accessory or replacement barrels were never imported for the over and under or side by side models.

This was due to the cost of the barrel and the cost of the required gunsmithing to fit the barrel. Each barrel requires a gunsmith to hand-fit the locking lugs, time the ejectors and fit the barrel to the forend.

Barrels for the Japanese SKB models are only available on the used market; occasionally they are listed for sale on eBay or Guns America or other internet auction sites.

When considering purchasing a used barrel, please remember that the used barrel will require fitting to both the receiver and forend by a qualified gunsmith.
