Thanks for your time, really appericated that you took time to explain

    You have to remember this stock was a new replacement in 1928, it's now 90 years old and went through WWII at a minimum and possibly a few other campaigns in the meantime. Sounds like your rifle was indeed turned down all the way to the front of the rear sight.

    Im not complaining haha its nice to have some safequeen but some old beat up rifle is awesome too. Gotta imagine what it went trought and still end up in my hand. Is there any info on how barrel modification affected accuracy? Does a turned down barrel should perform better than a simply cutted one? Otherwise ill try it this weekend and hope i can at least hit something without the bullet keyholing around

    Since turning down the barrel only effects the outside and not the bore, no change between the two types. I wish you the best of luck but accuracy will most likely be bad. Especially if you are using Privi ammunition as they bullets are undersized.

    Accuracy is bad with these because they cut away the portion of the barrel needed to stabilize the bullets. You might get lucky and have one that still shoots well. Let us know.

    well i went to shoot it today, on 12 shot at 50-60yards 8 landed on a 4x6 paper, so mutch for getting a grouping lol. sight are really bad too i had to aim 2-3 feet under the target to get the bullet to simply land around the paper. the bullet i had were .264 inch but i plan to reload and put some .268 trought it and see if it improve. its a shame it does not shoot better as the rifle work really well other than the crappy accuracy. Can't wait to see if i can at least hit the paper sheet each time with bigger bullet cause i really like the rifle other than that. i guess ill have to find a 91/28 if i can't get decent accuracy from this one lol

    You need to look up "progressive twist". Cutting the muzzle off ruins the accuracy. Plain and simple.
