even though there's no OP just a thread title I'll take a guess at the original question

Other than the Blazer you can also find straight pull Mauser M96 in .308 if you shop around

It would ruin a good barrel, but you could also weld up the port on a M!A.:what:

NO. I ain't donit, and I ain't gonna. But it would be cheaper than a Blaser.

You can convert a Swiss K-31 to .308. This gent does it:

Not cheap, but neither are Blazers or Mauser 96's.

I was, at one point, considering getting a K-31 and converting it. Then I figured that for the price of conversion I could buy a Lee Hand Press and a bunch of 7.5 Swiss brass and just load my own ammo for far, far, far cheaper.

As I understand it, a basic reloading settup can make near-match ammo for less than the cost of cheap plinker .308. That being the case, why bother changing from 7.5 Swiss to the basically equivalent .308? They take the same bullets, you just buy slightly different brass, and save a ton of money in gunsmithing.

I agree just get a K-31 in 7.5x55 Swiss, there very accurate, beautiful workmanship/machining and you can still get them for around $220-$260

Also if you want it scoped by a Swiss products/St. Maries clamp on scope mount and scope it
