converting a 1919 to 7.62x54r
I know there is a way to convert a 1919 to use 7.62x54r ... i think BarrelExchange does these conversions. But I'd like to do most of the work myself to "spare" parts I've been collecting as I have little money to finish the build with. (BTW, anyone got a 1919 bolt they wanna unload?)
I will have to send a .308 barrel to BE to have it chambered correctly. But the other parts can't be too hard to re-engineer.
My question is this - has anyone seen a tutorial / build it yourself info for this conversion, or is it BEs design only?
It would just be nice to have the ability to shoot some cheap commie surplus instead of high-dollar NATO rounds.
