IMHO 7.62X51 is too high pressure for this action. Drop in a hot .308 Winchester load and you could have problems. Plus there is no way to add a...
Very few gunsmiths rebore; it's expensive. Rebarreling would be easier if you fine a gunsmith with work on those particular rifles.
Kept in original condition, as a WWII relic, the value will only increase.
Canadian laws are unique, as are their border/customs people. In my 15 years of going hunting in Canada you can get the good, bad (& ugly)...
CCI 250 Magnum primer, maximum load of IMR4350, 180 Spitzer bullet is my go to load for .300 H&H.
If you load one in the chamber and one in the magazine (tube magazine) you can use spritzers. You just never want more than one spritzer in the...
I believe Jerry's is in bankruptcy.
While the same outside dimensions of both sets of cartridges: 7.62x25 - .30 Mauser; 5.56X45 - .223 Remington; both are loaded to different...

Gunsmiths also bored out 8x57 to 8mm-338. It was known as the 'poor man's magnum'. As stated above get a chamber cast done.
I had a .25 ACP barrel made for a TC Contender as a short range, reloadable, practice rifle. Expensive,(the barrel) but lots of fun. Can hit a...
Cartridge appears to be made in 1933. More that likely corrosive, personally I would NOT fire it, because of it's age. You have no idea how it's...
It's a takedown model also.
Brownell's has a house brand 1991 frames for sale.
My experience is that manufactures want to know the lot number and will probably want the round returned. Got a box of ammunition the last time I...
I have the same rifle in blue steel. 300 grain Hornady RN with max charge of IMR4895.
one of these: http://www.skinnersights.com/ or a 1.5x5 Leupold.
Back to the OP 9.3x62 would be more than adequate for Elk, larger verities of Bears, Bison. It can be used and is popular in Africa. It is not a...
Leave it alone: no refinish, no springs, no new sights, no new hammer, no new grips etc. Shoot, clean, & oil it.
