    Barrel change for Xbolt - easy or difficult?

    I've got an idea that its not easy or that gunsmiths don't like doing it. Is that correct?

    Thanks

    Yes, correct from what I've read on American hunting forums, why what are you wanting to do?

    [edit] maybe that was the A Bolt something about stripping receiver threads?

    There was a stainless 270wsm Xbolt on TM for $925 (fired a claimed 65 shots) that was a candidate for a 7mmsaum barrel - but it has gone through buy now while I was thinking about it.

    I was at the sika show 2 or 3 years ago now, I was talking to a supplier that had xbolts on the rack, I enquired about buying a ssm rifle (223) to swap the barrel for a 6x45 build, he shyed me away from it citing the actions weren't strong enough.... Take that for what you will.
