Thanks for the advice about cast bullets. I'll try sluging the barrel again

Its what happens when a not so common rifle is turned into to someones prized hunting rifle, I,ve said it a few times but back when this was done was at a time when milsurps were as cheap as chips, and folk altered them to a cheap sporter, again at this time it was more to do with food on the table than will it ever be a collectors peice in years to come.
Yourself didnt get this far but the mention of drills etc and adding a scope mount on a rare old lady brings shivers to a few here, and when its done then your rifle in most cases is worth as much as the one in the bottom pic.
