    Breda /Beretta Garands

    The Italianicon stocks are shorter in the forend than their American counterparts.Will this affect the ability to re-barrel in 30-06 or does one have to stick to .308 using Italian wood?Looking at a build using stripped Italian actions.

    The standard 30-06 version is a full length stock so to say in general that Italianicon stocks are shorter is not correct. The shorter will naturally be incorrect for the US barrel or Italian 30-06 barrels. You can extend it or buy an Italian stock if you want to keep it all Italian. I have about 50 BMR and PB stocks in full length. Rick Bicon

    Would there be a problem using a Beretta made action ,receiver and trigger group with a 30-06 pipe and a full size stock? That's my intensions.Can't be picky here in Canadaicon as to parts so likely SA for the rest.It's a shooter not a collectors piece.Looking at taking a couple years to put it together. Numrich has both styles of stocks . SA complete bolt.etc

    All the parts will fit together and work just fine.

    I had a Beretta that was once a 7.62 and once a 30-06. The stock, barrel, hand guard and op rod are all shorter. All the other parts interchange. I liked the feed of the 7.62 better. Silly to say but moving the weight of the gas cylinder back seem to make it just a little faster to point.

    I have a fair amount of Italianicon parts on hand if in need.
