    I had a 93 mauser sporter in 7x57 and it was a nice shooting rifle. I got it after watching a guy use an unmodified 1893 to shoot a running deer at about 200 yards with FMJ ammo (not the best for hunting). He fired 4 shots and hit the deer 3 times in the lungs. I could cover all three shots with my hand. He missed the 4th shot as the deer jumped a fence and collapsed on the other side. The deer probably would of dropped faster if he would of used expanding bullets. After that I shot the rifle and was suprized on the mild recoil. I ended up selling my 7x57 years later when I lived in a shotgun only state. Right now I'm debating putting a 7x57 on a 1891 mauser or putting on an octagon barrel in 250 savage. Can't seem to find a 7mm octagon barrel at a reasonable cost or I'd go that route in a heartbeat.

    IF I CAN RETHREAD A REM 700 BARREL TO A SMALL RING THREAD ILL JUST DO THAT.

    I COULD ALSO JUST RECHAMBER A 7MAG BARREL AFTER CUTTING HTE END OFF. THE MONEY ID SAVE ON USING A REM 700 OR SIMULER BARREL W OULD GO A LONG WYS TO A REAMER I COULD REUSE A FEW TIMES.

    I HAVE A LOT OF WAYS TO GO FROM .17 THROUGH .458 WITH TAKE OFF BARRELS.
    IF I CAN USE REMINGTON TAKE OFF BARREL WITH AN EXISTING CHAMBER AN JUST TURN AN THREAD I CAN DO A BARREL FOR ABOUT $20.

    well here is what it looks like. from 5 feet away it looks great for $70 but the bore is crap the stock has a small crack starting at the wrist, its missing the ejector, the barrel band were the sling attaches is wrong.

    I happen to have about 20 remington 700 take off barrels in various caliburs. 22-250, 223, 243, 260, 7mm-08, 7mm mag 308, 30-06, 300 mag, 300 ultra mag, 300 WSSM.
    ID LIKE TO BUILD A LIGHT WEIGHT SPORTER OUT OF IT AN I DONT WANT TO GEWT MORE THAN $125 MORE INTO IT. ILL HAVE TO SHOP WISELY AN DO A BARREL FROM SOMETHING i ALREADY HAVE HERE. NONE IF THE CALIBURES ABOVE ARE OK FOR THIS ACTION AS THERE ALL TO HIGH IN PRESSURE. I REALIZE I COULD LOAD LIGHT FOR SEVERAL OF THE ABOVE CALIBURS BUT ID BE REALLY AFRAID OF A MIX UP AS I HAVE OTHER GUNS IN MANY OF THEM.

    im looking at maybe trimming off the back of the 7mag barrel an rechambering to
    7mm mauser an rethreading it to fit the snmall ring. Unfortunatly I dont have the reamer. I could also do a 300 savage on a .30 cal barrel but I dont want to deal with feed issues if there are any. I have the reamer for it . Im sort of looking for a 257 roberts barrel maybe. The 260 Rem could become a 6,5x55 but again no reamer I have seen some really cheap plastic stocks that dont use the floor plate an trigger guard there really light. I have reamers for 17-233 bolt face to big, 22 cheatah ( necked down 308) 7.62x25( would make a awsome plinker) 6mm-284 (way to powerfull loaded up but would work great loaded lighter maybe ) 6mm BRX (to short to feed wel lan will have high pressure rounds layng around ) 300 savage pressure just right may not feed well with out tweaks ) 7.62x39 ( bolt face to small an the round is too weak IMO form my wants as a deer gun, to short to feed properly ) 358 Win ( hmmm might work if loaded with in limits no other guns in house shooting it, calibrure might be hard to feed, no barrel blanks great brush roiund deer drive no scoupe round ) ill just have to see what i come up with on the barrel

    i have also looked at those 45acp conversiions ( not really good for any hting except plinking but it would be fun fo that. there $160 an out of the budget )

    ill need a trigger, ill need to bend the bolt an ill need to get scope bases for it, make a barrel and buy a stock for under $125 or under, the trigger seems to be the most expsnive part a, id like like a side saftey version as well if im going to buy a new one. Im thinking this will be a father son project an he will get the gun at some point.

    I have also considered leaving it iron sights as well an making it a light weight deer drive brush gun I would noe need to rework the already factory bent bolt that will hit a scope. not considering a scout mount at this time. its going to be some thing as its no good as is. LOL

    i have also been considering a lock ring set up like the savage uses. Id have to come up with a spaner nut thats thread with mauser threads or a second set of threads that are just for th nut somehow. the rine lander conversion uses a lock nut also in 45 acp.

    The ejector shoud be easy to find. I wonder if they're specific to the model year or if they're all interchangeable? Since you're not pressed for time you can do some trolling on ebay to find the trigger and a stock. The savage type locknut is a good idea. There was an article on doing that in SGN a year or so ago. I've done it with a ar15 barrel and found it was a little more forgiving than standard chambering.

    I THINK THE EJECTOR IS THE SAME ON MANY OF THE SMALL RINGS BUT I KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT WHAT WILL AN WONT FIT.

    MAKING A BARREL NUT IS GOING TO BE A LITTLE CHALLANGING I GUESS ITS TIME TO BUY SOME MORE TOOLING FOR INIDE THREADS. THERE ARE TAPS TO FIT THE SMALL RING RECIVER I SUSPOSE i COULD USE THAT BUT THERE EXPENSIVE AN ILL HAVE THE LATHE SET UP FOR THE RIGHT PITCH ANY WAY.

    LANCASTER ARMS USES A BARREL NUT ONHTERE 45ACP CONVERSION I WNDER IF THEY WOULD SELL A NUT SEPERATLY????????

    AS FAR AS I CAN FIND OUIT ON A SMALL RING THE BARREL REGISTERS ON THE FACE OF THE RECIVER VS A INNER RING ON A 98. IS THIS CORRECT??????????????

    IF I HAD REAMERS FOR EVERY THING ID JUST DO A TRADITION BARREL INSTALL AN THEN FINISH REAM WHEN DONE.

    I DONT WANT TO MAKE A HUGE DEAL OVER THIS BUILD ILL LIKELY NEVER CHANGE BARRELS AROUND OR ANY OF THAT STUFF.

    i JUST WANT TO MAKE IT A USBALE DECENT LOOKING HUNTING RIFLE THAT CAN HANDEL SO ABUSE. A CHEAP PLASTIC STOCK KEEPS GETTTING MORE APEALING NOT SURE HOW THEY WILL SHOOT IF NOT BEDDED IN AN ALL THAT THOUGH.

    EJECTOR ON THE WAY FROM EBAY PACK OF 5 FOR $5 HOPE THEY FIT.

    i HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT CHOATE STOCKS . THEY HAVE A BLIND MAGAZINE AN DONT USE THE FACTORY FLOOR PLATE OR TRIGGER GUARD SEEM PRETTY LIGHT BUT HAVE A SLIGHTLY CHEAP HOLLOW FEEL. I SAW A LARGE RING AT A SHOW TODAY THAT HAD ONE ON IT. FELST A LITTLE CHEAP BUT THE WEIGHT SEEMED GOOD. IM MORE ABOUT GETTING THIS GUNS WEIGHT DOWN FOR A KIT TO PACK.

    ANY ONE EVER USE A CHOATE STOCK ON A MAUSER????? IM WONDERING IF IT CAN BE BEDDED ??????????

    Hello 1biggun,
    Sarco does list a couple interesting barrels.

    MSR381 7x57 19" Large ring 98 new.
    MSR110 7x57 19" w/outside pits but new bore. Lg ring.
    MSR254 6.5x55 Swede for M-94 small ring.

    I'd consider using the Swede 6.5x55 barrel and make the rifle into a Swede carbine clone with the early schnable end cap etc. I did this many years ago.

    note: the large ring barrels will need to have the threads turned down and rethreaded back to 12 TPI.

    NOT A BAD DEAL ON THE 6.5 BARREL ( TOOK ME A WHILE TO FIND THEM)

    I THINK IM GOING FOR A MORE SPORTER TYPE PROFILE.

    IM GOING TO TRY RETHREADING A REMINGTON TAKE OFF BARREL IF i SCREW IT UP ILL JUST USE IT ON A AK BUILD.

    I HAVE A COUPLE STAINLESS 260 REMINGTON BARRELS IN A SUPER LIGHT SPORTER PROFILE. IM THINKING OF RETHREADING ONE OF THOSE AN THEN EITHER LOADING IT LIGHT IN 260 OR RECHAMBERING IT TO 6.5X55. iM STILL GOING TO HAVE TO WATCH OUT FOR HOT AMMO GETTING SWAPPED IN AS IM BUILDING A LARGE RING 6.5 SWEDE AN IT WILL BE LOADED TO 65,000 PSI.

    IM THINKING MAYBE NICKEL PLATED BRASS FOR THE SMALL RING AN LEAVING IT A 260 REMINGTON IF IT FEEDS OK AN LOADING IN THE 48,000 PSI RANGE. ILL BE COLLECTING PARTS FOR A WHILE . I MAY NEEED TO BUY A 6.5 SWEDE REAMER FOR MY 98 ACTON BUILD DO IF i DO THEN ILL JUST BUILD A 6.5X55.

    I JUST WATCHED SOME IDIOTS BID A CHOATE STOCK ON EBAY UP $25 OVER A NEW PRICE FROM MIDWAY LOL . I WAS HOPING FOR A $35 DEAL BUT IT SKY ROCKETED.

    THERE ARE SOME REALLY NICE LOOKIG LAMINATED STOCKS OUT THERE BUT I WANT LIGHT WEIGHT FOR THIS BUILD .

    MY FIRST STEP IS TO SEE IF i CAN GET THE BARREL OFF WITH OUT WRECKING THE RECIVER.
