    Must point out that this is a military take-off barrel. No chance its shank is just waiting to
    have it's length adjusted for chambering. What's more, Mausers have a standard shank length for
    each mode...

    The following is a quote from another forum from 2007. No definitive answer was given, so,
    since I now have a barrel just like the one from the old post, I'm bringing his question
    here:"Came across wh...

    I have known this stuff for decades. All I wanted were actual DIMENSIONS of the barrel diameter
    if cut back 2-1/4". You are both probably right that the barrel would be too small. I never
    said it woul...

    well, let me address this from just a logical standpoint, since i'm not an engineer, or a
    ballistics expert, but am someone who has seen more than one gun blown apart when some one
    named Bubba modifie...

    A fair amount of assumption going on by some who seem to think I would not be as knowledgeable
    as they. I HAVE checked the chamber dimensions of the two cartridges and know that roughly
    2-1/4 inches w...

    The 7x57 barrels for $25 on eBay do not have good bores. GM is more than I want to pay. Just
    for the record, the forces on a barrel and action tend to push the shoulder AWAY from the
    receiver during t...

    I have a '91 Mauser action that I want to rebarrel to 7x57. Is there enough meat in a 7mm
    magnum Remington or other takeoff barrel to cut back the breach end a couple of inches and
    still have enough d...

    My old eyes couldn't focus on the front site, so I made a scope mount for a Bushnell Phantom
    1.3x scope I already had. The mount is a tight fit in the dovetail that held the rear site and
    is also tigh...

    Well, I recall an old TV canned tuna commercial that said tuna was "chicken o the sea," so I
    prefer the phrase, "chicken of the tree."I have used my Remington 510 single shot bolt gun
    mostly, but may ...
