    Lots made and much cheaper to buy a 9.3x57 in a 96 /38 action at least the pressure is sane.

    Some people like stepped barrels and have the gunsmith turn them that way.

    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.

    Notice the stepped barrel.
    For all the trouble and expense of that stock & sights, why hold on to the military stepped barrel?
    Yeah, it's pretty, but for all that work, why the stepped barrel?
    For God's sake, why the stepped barrel?
    And what is wrong with a stepped barrel? It is no worse than a maple stock.
    To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, the trouble with many shooting experts is not that they're ignorant; its just that they know so much that isn't so.

    The "British Model" of Mauser built sporters featured the stepped barrel and double stage military type trigger. According to my catalog reprint.

    I like stepped barrel, actually prefer them. No way I am going to spend $1500.00 for a sporterized mauser, Swedish or otherwise. But hey, it's not my money and every man has a right to spend his money the way he wants. james
