    Can anyone say when Browning started pressing barrels instead of using threads. What is the advantage/disadvantage of this method of rifle production?

    Not sure on when the change from threads to pressing of barrels occurred...

    But, I would imagine production costs would be lower.

    Not many users change the barrel of a new firearm in their lifetime...

    Didn't know they ever installed BAR barrels any other way than the current way. Did they ever thread into... something other than a pressed-in extension?
    The parts schematics at Brownells(.com) sort of lead me to believe they've never been threaded. That's not a photo, though; just a parts schematic.
