    Anyone Here can rebarrel a mauser action?

    Title says it all: I have 2 mausers that I would like to put new barrels on.

    Would you be interested in doing it yourself? I could describe a method to you. It can be done at home with a minimum of equipment. Tools needed would be a good bench vise, a finishing reamer in whatever cartridges you intend to rebarrel for, some kerosene, some cutting oil, a couple of old toothbrushes or acid brushes, a longish T-handle, a "no-go" and a "go" headspace gauge for each cartridge, three tallish tin cans, two cleaning rods and cleaning patches. You would utilize short chambered barrels. Brownell's is a good source for them, assuming your cartridge choices are relatively common.
