    Default 7.62x25 barrel from a 1919 barrel

    I had some time today, and since I'm not thrilled with the accuracy of my sleeved ppsh barrel in my conversion, I turned down a new barrel. Since I have 3 extra 1919 barrels that I'll never be able to sell I figured I could use one as a donor and if I screwed it up, who cares. I'll turn down the other two barrels later and by the time I finish the third, if the chrome bores of the 1919 barrels have wiped out my .30 mauser chamber reamer, I'm not too concerned, I planned to sell the other two barrels anyway and I should break even on this project. The exact locations of the stepped down parts of the barrel are a little off from the romy barrel to match my gun which is already built. I may find a cheap reamer to removed the chrome before I run the chamber reamer in. Anyhow what do you guys think?

    looks good. but i have to agree with you, waste a cheap reamer before using the chamber reamer.

    Yea, it took some time to make, but if you have the time why not. I used a brazed carbide bit and only had to resharpen it twice.

    Well as far as groups, the first barrel I used is a ppsh41 barrel that I sleeved for the trunnion and barrel extension. When I last shot it I was real tired and also couldn't get my eyes to focus right, I had a worked a 12 hr shift that night and then went to the range at 10 that morning with no rest. My gun was printing all over a paper plate at 25yds, even missing it. I saw no evidence of rnds hitting the extension, its straight, accuracy just sucked. Shot my buddies Beretta Storm with a holo sight and printed a nice 2 inch group at the same distance. I ordered a holo sight and will try it before I tear the rifle back apart. I got in on ioinc's last mag and drum deal and have been able to find some very realiable mags and drums. I have since stripped the wood and stained it black, but heres a pic of the gun. I love it more than most of my other guns.

    Did you have a 5 gallon bucket full of chips afterward?
