Re: Anyone custom a Browning A-Bolt?
Thinking of doing a simple re-barrel with a Douglas XX Air-Gauged stainless #7 contour (Rem Sendero/Varmint contour), and just keeping it a 7mm RemMag, and doing an aftermarket stock. It would be cheaper, plus I already have all the components to do 7mm RemMag at home. I would have to buy .280 AI brass and dies, and a Browning A-Bolt II bolt head (which my smith said he could get me for around $70.00, which I might just get him to get me anyway, incase I do decide to swap up calibers later on down the road). I'd have to swap out magazines with a non-magnum caliber magazine (probably .30-06), and it would just be too expensive right now to do a whole new caliber...
So I'll probably just do the re-barrel and new stock, and order the bolt-head for when I need it, or if I need it later on, since it's only $70.00.
