    As you can see in the header, I'm looking for one of the now long discontinued Colt Light Rifles in 25-06 Remington. Will buy in any condition.....Cash.

    Need action, barrel, and stock for seperate projects. :D It has to be in 25-06 Remington, cannot use other calibers...ie: 30-06, or 270.

    Thanks in advance, Tom

    Just curious....Wouldn't the action and stock be interchangable for 25-06, 270, 30-06? Why does it need to be 25-06? Educate me.

    They do..... even though the barrel is slightly smaller in diameter and the corresponding barrel channel in the stock. However I need the barrel for another project.

    Thanks, Tom

    last I knew, they did not make the light rifle in a 25-06

    Only 30 06. 300 WM. 270 and 7mm Mag

    Are you sure they made them?

    I've Owned Several Of The Colt's. While They Where Cataloged In 25-06, I've Never Seen One.

    At one time I tried to collect all the calibers but only wound up with the 270, 7mm, 30-06 and the 300 mag. I could never find the 243 or the 25-06 that was suppose to be available. Still have the 06 though.

    I've seen two. AND I should've snatched up both. Oh well.....the quest continues.

    :) Thanks, Tom
