    I was able to do a few more measurements on the barrel and front sight. It looks like the barrel was shortened to 24 inches, then a step was cut into the muzzle end of the barrel prior to remounting...

    These rifles are relatively inexpensive compared to other US made rifles of the same vintage mostly because ammo is unavailable. I have no idea whether converting to 38 Super would work, but...

    Okay thanks, that makes a lot more sense. So I guess the story of the barrels being turned and rechambered to eliminate the slop in military chambers is a firearms "urban legend"?

    Okay, thanks for the replies. Definitely looks like a sporterized military model. I assume the sporterization was done by a professional, since the barrel was apparently turned and rechambered,...

    Okay, I checked again, the numbers shown in the picture above are the only ones. So if the barrel is cut down, it should be larger at the end than a 28" barrel, right? The barrel diameter on mine...
