    Well it was close to a no go. If you’ll recall, the chamber was massively bored out. After removing the front sight base for resale and tripping over the darn thing since, I finally tossed it in the recycle bin. I’m away on business and had to call the girlfriend to do a little dumpster diving for me. God bless that woman haha.

    Terribly. The bore on that one is quite nice as well.

    I'd have probably tried to sleeve the chamber, as sketchy as it may be for full bore rifles. The only saving grace would be the Kragicon is low pressure relatively...I'm sure we talked about that too. Most discourage it for full bore.

    The barrel end profile change is but one of the "issues" with Krags that had also occurred with the 'trapdoor' only a very few years before, the other being the thin-wrist stock. It is like they paid absolutely ZERO attention to history. As far as the barrel goes, the fix (on either rifle) is simply to round off the end of the shank. "Late" barrels fit "early" receivers, in both arms, so the need to do the machining is seldom required. Of course I'm talking TD/TD and Kragicon/Krag here - there is NO interchangeability between rifle models!

    I thought that might be the case...
