    Looks great! Love making old mausers useful again.

    Pietro- you are my hero. Thanks for posting the pics for me. As everyone can see I had blue paint on it for storage. In one pic you can see the remnant of the 7.62x39 chamber. I may be looking for a timney or such if it keeps shooting so well. The barrel didn't take the browning as well as the action but I'll redo that later. Right now I'm looking for my CB load; it shoots jackets great. Care is used loading the mag with three rounds only and it works fine. Thanks to all along the way. This dog can hunt!
    Best, Thomas.

    Very nice! I like your simple way of addressing the magazine box length. I'm planning on putting a 219 zipper in a 93, I may follow your lead.

    One of those light bulb moments. Obviously for rimmed cartridges only. This was/is a fun project. Are the 93 actions Sarco is offering Spanish or German?

    The ones that I received were all made by Oviedo. On another note, when I put a rimmed case in a box magazine, I like a hinged floor plate. In the event that someone loads it incorrectly its very easy to dump the cartridges and start over.

    Been there a few times. It would be a hassle with a bullet tip release.

    I have had about a dozen of the bullet tip release style buttons. I simply make new ones that stick out farther and checker them, so I can use a finger to operator them.

    Haven't had much time to make chips lately. I did thread a Green Mountain 1" blank to .980x12 for a SMR and made a barrel nut. Should work just fine. Need to taper the barrel and get an action ready for it. I've got a few other things on the bench that should be finished first.

    Uncle Grinch- Pietro posted those for me and I don't have the file anymore. If you PM me I can text cell phone pics. I'm way too dumb to post pics!

    I'm going to take it out of the stock and modify the military trigger and redo the browning on the barrel; and maybe slim the stock down somewhat. I'll probably add a 1/2" pad for security when it's leaning in the corner while I'm at it.

    Update- it works!
    Lee C309fp at 1800 fps over IMR 3031
    Range 36 paces. Let's eat.
    The Limbsaver is shoulder recovery mandated. This marked my last pull of that terrible original trigger. It now sports a Timney that gauges 3# so I'm happy.
    I'm going to find an unaltered folower to try to get more OAL for pointy 150grs.

    I found an original unaltered follower from Numrich/GPC.
    I will still need the "rim stop screw" but it will be installed farther back on this one.

    Why not just weld in a little shelf in the back to keep the rims from slipping over the back? Something like this poor drawing. It would take up less real estate.

    I need to see the one you did for your 219 Zipper lol....
    That is a great idea map55b. I may try it but the screw is easily done and works great.

    Hey Texas by God: I did thread a 1" .224 blank and make a barrel nut (SRM) for the zipper project. I just haven't tapered it yet or prepared an action. I have three barrels that I hope to get tapered tomorrow, though two will be copies of an '03 Mannlicher Schoenauer profile, so they will require some extra work. I'll post some pictures of the barrel when its done.

    Look Texas by God! Progress! I started off with a 1" .224 barrel blank from Green Mountain. Turned it on centers, threaded it for small ring Mauser, tapered it and made a nut. I may shorten the nut later, or maybe not. Still need to polish out the barrel too.
