Re: J P Sauer MK V Barrel on a VZ24 Mauser Action
I have converted a couple VZ24s to belted magnum, and one with a take off magnum barrel from a different action. I had to cut off the threads, cut new threads, cut shoulder, cut chamber, longer magazine box, open the bolt face, relief the extractor, and open the feed lips.
It is all straight forward, except the feed lips. Without R.A. Walsh's book, I would have never figured it out.
I got a 300WM Parker Hale barrel from Numrich for $35.
It was hand lapped inside, smooth as a Lilja!
