Re: Why not a tube gun???

Great looking work. I have considered this. Relatively few cuts makes it probably seem easier than it is. I have an an old junker action that someone twisted trying to remove it from a factory barrel with a rear entry wrench. I was able to beat it back in line enough to run a bolt raceway reamer through it. I found an old bolt and sleeved it and bushed the firing pin and installed a sako extractor. I think it would be perfect for a tube gun project, especially if I do it on the cheap.
I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.
