As per your Silhouette rules, refer to 3.1.3 (b) which reads, in part :-
Barrels must be original or may be relined. Original barrels re-bored to a larger caliber are allowed.
That seems to be fairly clear.

Honestly, if you like the rifle and want to spend money on a new barrel go for it. I can 100% guarantee you no one will come up to you at a club match and protest that it isn't a "factory" barrel... I can 99.5% assure you it wouldn't happen at a state or national match unless you shot a bunch of 40's with it.... ;)

I'm kind of partial to the 12C. My grandfather's gun was the first 22 that I ever shot.

I've read that it's almost impossible to succesfully re-line the model 12, so a new barrel may be your only option if it's worn out.

dont want to sound like a lawyer but another ORIGINAL Remington barrel seems to be ok under the rule
the rule does not say must be "original to the rifle" just an original barrel.
