jorvin,
What barrel contour and length did you use ?
Also, what did your rig end up weighing ?

    the barrel is a mcgowen #7 (i think) target contour. it tapers to 8.75" at the muzzle. Mcgowen has a speicial on there pistol barrels(tell them it's a savage pistol large shank) up to 17" long. i went with the 17" barrel. my gun with everything on it including the bipod is 10.5 lbs. and it is 31" long tip to tip. very hard to find a holster for her!!!!

    Since you used a rifle action and made a pistol will you have to do paperwork to have it reclassified as a pistol?

    the action is sent to you ffl undesignated and when your ffl puts it in your name it gets classified as a rifle or pistol... I don't think you can go from a rifle to a pistol.

    zuba is right ! these action's come from the factory as actions only. they have never been assembled as a rifle. it is a felony to take a rifle action and make it into a pistol. just like the encore frame. jim at northland supply can give you more info.
