    Gentlemen, I know it's not much to you Pro's. But, I lapped my bolt lugs into the receiver tonight. Bolt nums did not match receiver. Started out with approx 10-15 % on lugs. Ended in the high 90's. Kinda cool. Probably took 30 mins. Then I...

    Gentlemen, I finally did it. I ponied up, and ordered the LR Mauser, 35 Whelan pre-chambered barrel blank. I always say; if your gonna be a bear, be a Grizzly. Talked to my "Smith". Says removing about a 1/4'' from breach end, rethreading to SR...

    Gentlemen, I finally got the barrel off. I cut a relief like Ya'll suggested. Spun right off. Easy-peazy. Bolt set-back looked pretty good to me. Now to lap the boly lugs in. Randy.

    Midway has a 35 Whelen blank for a LR Mauser. Thinking about having shank turned down and threaded for a SR Mauser. Then having a couple threads removed. And finally rechamber to a 35X57 with a 35 Whelan finish reamer. ...

    Gentlemen, still weighing options. but, you got the wheels turning. I'm really stuck on a 35 cal. Can anyone tell me why I should go 7X57 instead. Besides price of conversion of course. Randy.

    Gentlemen, if I watch my pressure; what about .358 Winchester? Real easy to make from 308. Will I have feeding issues though? Randy.

    Gentlemen, Back when the Obama-ammo scare was in full force. I too had a Yildez 410 converted to 32 mag. I had the barrel stubbed by a guy on Greybeards. He grafted a stainless 30/06 Rem take off barrel on. So I have to watch how fat my loads are (...

    Texas by God, I concur those are really cool guns. What Buckshot accomplished is about what I envision. Or Larry Gibson's 35X57 as well. Larry Gibson's 35X57 is a little more elaborate to produce but I should not have any feeding problems. I keep on...

    RustyReel, the extractor was in the bag. As well as screws, barrel bands, butt plate, etc. pretty much everything, except I am missing the screw, and I believe a spring for the lever that releases the bolt. Randy.

    Moleman-, thanks for the info on firing pins. Yes, I agree having a couple spare Mauser's ain't all that bad. I will take a couple pics when I receive said Mauser.

    Yes Sir, it does. Patience is a virtue I lack. I will try to hold off till Memorial day. After that all bets are off. Also talked to my FFL, Mauser is running late. Hopefully tomorrow I will see what I got. Randy.

    I just got a PM from a well known member stating that the above mentioned barrel isn't suitable. My memory served me incorrectly stating in post #28 ".920'' SR Mauser barrel shank". He correctly stated "SR Mauser thread shanks are .980''. The blank...

    Sir, that is all the info I was provided. My main question I suppose is if the " Shank measures .950" diameter x 1-1/2" long " would be enough material for the .920 threads on the small ring Mauser.

    Gentlemen, that is a lot of food for thought. While we are speaking 35 rem/35x57's. Do the specs on this barrel appear to be acceptable for a 35 rem/35x57 barrel job with a SR mauser action? As follows: Star Rolling Block Barrel Blanks Original...
