After reading posts about a .17 Hornet I am considering building one. Looking for an inexpensive donor rifle I came across the Savage Model 40 but I don't know how the barrel is attached to the receiver. If it's threaded, I should be good to go, if it is a press in, I'm not ready to tackle it.

Any of you know if it is threaded? Have you rebarreled one? If so, how did it go?

Thanks

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
