Mauser rebarrel question

Recommended Posts

Lweeks    0

I was considering purchasing one of the large ring mauser actions from sarco. I need recommendations on a smith to barrel the action. I am intending on a 270win barrel with a varmint profile, probably a Shaw barrel. I live in Mcminn county between Knoxville and Chattanooga if you know someone nearby. I am open to shipping the gun off if the smith's quality of work, or pricing makes it the better decision. I would perfer to have someone semi local (within 1.5 hr drive) do the work if possible.I just don't really want to send it across the country and wait months for the work to be done if I don't have to.

Those Shaw barrels are short chambered so you will need a reamer to cut the last few thousands. I don't know anything about what Sarco is selling these days but you will need some sort of sights I recommend a Redfield or another quality one piece mount. The receiver will need to be drilled and taped 6-48 or perhaps 8-40. Also the safety will need to be fitted and it's better to let someone do it properly. This is going to cost as much as a whole entry level rifle will when you add it all up. There's a guy in Columbia, TN I will reach out to and see if he's interested in doing this for you. I don't talk to him very often and things change. I will message you this weekend when I find out.

      This may be a longshot.  I picked up an old Llama IXA for $150, and figured it would be a fun little resto project that wouldn't break the bank.  The last piece I'm missing is the extractor spring.  This is part #10 shown in the attached schematic.  I'm having a hell of a time finding this little sumbitch.  Anyone out there what size/ load this spring is supposed to be, or if it is interchangeable with any other firearms?  
      If someone had one laying around, that would be even better.

      Why do I need an AK-47?   It's a pretty simple question, really.  I think I want one, but I am not really sure why.
      I have always owned AR platform rifles.  All of my gear is for the AR platform.  I have been tempted by the AK many times over the years but never dipped my toes into those waters.  I have only shot a handful of them over the past two decades.  But, again, I think that maybe I want one.
      Like a lot of folks, I was ready to buy one last October as we ran up toward the election, but then I breathed a sigh of relief when Hillary was kept out of office.
      Talk me into or out of this.
