    Did you rebarrel it or just rechamber it?

    Sorry, I have no idea. I got it from a friends dad from work many moons ago($25). It was REAL bulbous then and the safety wouldn't work. If you cocked/loaded/cycled the bolt with the safety on, when you took safety off, the firing pin went bang.

    I removed the 7x57 barrel. I had a Numrich 7.62x39 Large Ring 98 Mauser barrel, so my brother the machinist cut off the threads and rethreaded for Small Ring. I had him short chamber it on the lathe with the 30-30 reamer. I installed the barrel and finished the reaming by hand-in the Mauser the 30-30 must headspace on the shoulder due to the claw extractor. It was an idea floating around in my head until hpdrifter offered up that 1916 Oviedo sporter and we made a trade. After trying it with 7x57( it wouldn’t group well) the project began.

    That is beautimous.
    Nothing is impossible for the person that does not have to do it.

    Oh man..... I just hate it when you put ideas in my head. I was raised up on Mausers with a $15 Spanish Mauser back in 1974 and just got over another SR Mauser project for a 35 Remington. Now I want a 30-30.
