Default New Barrels

I have an opportunity to pick up 2 Browning 24" bull barrels. One is a 22/250 and the other is a 243. I need to know if the barrel threads are specific to Browning or can they interchange with other makes? these barrels are in new condition. What would they be worth? Can they be adapted or would that be impractical?

They are specific to the model they were threaded for unless they were originally meant for the old Belgium Brownings. You could rethread them for something with smaller threads but to cut and rethread wouldn't be practical.

Come to find out, He wants $100 each for them. If you need one that is probably a good price but I don't need them and probably never will knowing my feelings toward Browning. These barrels were removed from new actions that were tourched in Australia according to him, For what ever that is worth?
