Put that USGI web sling on that nice rifle properly before you drop it and end up with a ding on the stock.
Yeah, I don't even know how that got on there. It has been buried in the safe for a few years. And I have several orig Enfield web slings laying around here, too. Ha.

Wow you do really nice work. You wouldn't ever even know that you cut the end of the barrel off of that guns at one point
I have an uncle that does this, but he actually cuts the stock to make the guns shorter.

Does cutting the actual barrel affect the accuracy at all? I figured if you cut the barrels off of rifles that it would mess with the rifling in the barrel. Is this true?

Stock work is easy. Minor metal work is fairly easy, too. Anyone can do that stuff.

But for cutting the bbls, I rely on Jim Hoag and Dean Wilkerson, two excellent local gunsmiths.

I just tell them how I want it and they deliver the finished product. They do all the heavy lifting.

Yes, short rifles and carbines.

Mini 30, SKS, MN 44 and now two LE #5s "Jungle Carbines" (plus a fun #4). Only iron sights.

These small LEs are so handy/lightweight, but still have a deadly bite-like a short cobra.
Wish I could find the brief Internet description of the encounter with a charging grizzly. The guy had stopped to take a leak, and his Jungle Carbine stopped it with four shots.

Not being a hunter, my question is, where are the best places to hit a large bear with the .303, in the head or neck?
