    Breecblock for .22 BSA 12/15

    I want to get a standard breech block. I am happy to trade one that has been converted to c/f for a Hornet. I had started to convert a rifle and now a mate wants it in .22 for bunny sniping.

    Hi Gundoc, I was going to do a Hornet for a buddy on a Model 12/15 or Model 12, what have you done to the breech block to convert please ?

    Padox, this is a Martini type action, single shot, I have a bunch of old .22 bolts in a box might have one for your old BSA ?

    I have converted a good number to .22 Hornet and K Hornet over the years. I anneal the front of the block, bore it out and thread it for a silver steel insert, screw that in and dress the front of the block to the original dimensions, assemble the breech and drop a neat-fitting pointed hardened-steel rod down the bore to mark the drilling point for the new pin, drill it to 1.5mm then make an offset pin on the original striker. the cleaning hole in the rear of the action needs to be bored out bigger than the rim diameter of the cartridge case then chamber and headspace with extractor in place and supported by a spring or wedge to keep it still. About two hours work after you have done a couple.
