It sounds like a nice rifle and a good shooter.
As expensive as they are there, you will likely devalue it substantially with any modification. You may even degrade the accuracy in the process.
I would recommend piecing together a Savage or building a Mauser-based custom rifle
I'm not sure who said it first, but I often hear Darrel Holland say, "Beware of the man with one rifle. He probably knows how to use it."
