Building a 6.5x54R

Postby ahart.mark » Thu Aug 06, 2015 9:13 pm

I have a buba'd fin m28. Since previous owner ruined all historical value. I am thinking of building a 1970's style biathlon rifle. Anybody out there have any info on this?

Sounds like a good project. Shame though that a good M28 was ruined.

You will need to get a reamer for it and a new barrel. Pacific Tool and Gauge has that reamer already in their database.
Joe at Anacortes Prototypes is you man for putting it together for you.

Good post, Grimstod. Could only read about the Frenchman , but good read. Google wasn't co-operating for the other one . And people wonder why we fight for our 2A rights . Going to follow this with interest , as I'm still waiting for mine to arrive , and this info will be very helpful .
