I'm sure that is a JM TK barrel, usually only reserved for high end guns.  If it shoots well that is certainly a nice perk.

Maccari gun, that guy was a hack. Prolly had a soft tune in it. 

Glad he’s retiring. Guy needs to be cut off.

When the broken Pro elite arrives tomorrow  I will check  to see  how the barrel & shroud  look, not up on Maccari's  work  other  that  I bought his springs & seals  in the past.  I will also check on line to see the  pro elite  to see if there's any difference

Can you fill me in on  the Jim Maccari  T K  barrel  is  that something he  used to sell, the barrel block looks factory 

I would think there's a pin  in the block making the barrel  secure, I will have a good look  when I  get  her ready for a full tune.

Thanks Mike E

Thanks 

I think she looks  nice   too.

There was a time when I could care less  for a pro elite but now  I really  appreciate  the fine rifle and I am  very happy  I was able  to acquire  the two of them the same day LOL  that was a WOW moment

After looking at other pro elites it is probably factory.  There was a time when the TK barrels where installed on R series guns in the early 2000's.  I remember Jan Kraner used them a lot on his custom creations.  Then the design changed, and was eventually discontinued.

I just researched  the TK barrel, That was interesting , wonder what barrel jim used my guess it was a Lothar walther ,  So jim also CNC  new barrel  blocks for it,  for different guns that's pretty cool He could of had  someone else  do a print out for it then had a bunch of the new barrel blocks made

I am fairly sure  this is factory I had one before it looked the same.

I did come across  a picture of  your rifle from another  old post WOW that looks AMAZING

I think the seller made a genuine effort of trying to show the condition of the rifle. Based on the pics and description I wouldn't have bought it becauseI prefer guns in nicer condition.
