Re: Browning BAR 308 conversion to 6.5 what?
If you find any barrel manufacturer or gunsmith that makes a barrel or a gunsmith that will tackle the re barrel! PM ME OR CONTACT ME ASAP!!! I love the guns, have a older styler BAR .270 and a newer Long Trac .270 and wanting a shorttrac .243 win , and have searched and research and made phone call after phonecall looking for this type work to be done, (my dream was a short Trac .243 win w/ a helical or some type fluted barrel and brake) and what I have also been told , once the barrel is removed on the newer aluminum actions it's hard to thread or have a new barrel threaded and most gunsmiths have to have the action remover To put the barrel in a lathe to thread it. Anyways I know this is off your original topic, but from my research it's almost a lost cause unless you have a gunsmith that's your best friend and beg him just to give it a try or . . . Get the machinery and do it yourself hahahahaha. And not saying its a lost cause bc I know it can be done! But BY WHO? Is the big question of the matter.
If I had to choose between taking a civilian or POG on a patrol, I'd happily take the civilian. At least he hasn't made the conscious decision of being a coward in the military yet!"
