    Winchester pre '64 Project

    This has been kicking around for a long time and I'm sick of looking at it. Was going to be a long-range rifle that got stuffed up by so called professionals.
    Pre-64 action bolt face opened up for Magnums
    Masterclass semi finished stock
    Barrel too tight to use good for a tomato stake or tying the dog to.

    All the bits are there it just needs some love and a new barrel

    Feel free to ask questions.

    You would have to wonder why the barrel was even installed in the first place if it was not usable??

    I see it sold on TM, thank goodness as I was seriously thinking of buying it to make a 458Win on, I think the tight barrel could of been made to work with the right slugs/necking work ?

    Yup finally got rid of it. Going to be 375 Ruger project for the new owner good on him. The barrel was installed by the Muppets who made it no real mystery there. As a consumer you have to sort of trust the guys who say they know what they are doing. Anyway I can finally put it behind me. The money is going towards a new 30" .338LM barrel that Hardy Rifle the good buggers are spinning up for me.

    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -
