    answere to old, if i drive the rod out of the chamber question is answered

    Attachment 28173soooo.
    i purchaced a 1917 Drill rifle , barrel is a JA, that was plugged at both ends.
    not welded to the action.
    many times iv read,. since my barrel isnt torch cut through the chamber, if i drive the plug out can i chamber and fire a 30-06??
    the answer is.......................
    NO....
    heres what i learned this morning, i cut the muzzle , behind the blug at that end, recrowned it.
    then held the barrel in my black smiths vise and drove out the plug...not easy by the way.
    cleaned up nicely.. 30-06 dropped in nice...too nice.
    so i looked with a light,,they counter bored the chamber so that the plug would fit snug..
    so....
    hears what i plan on doing with the barrel.
    i ream it to .300 mag, and save it for a sporterized 17 with a nice original barrel, and chamber it to .300 mag...
    then install the military barrel on a nice 17...

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    I've got a SC drill rifle. Only welded a little on top of barrel and receiver. Can't get the rod out of the chamber. Doesn't appear to be welded. Want to play with it, Chuck? I was hoping the barrel could be used.
