    Have ab CZ HMT .17 Barrel

    Purchased a CZ 455 off here, and it came with 22 and the HMR , now the Q I wish answered is this.
    Is it feasible to make up another rifle with this barrel , so I have both to utilise and no swapping of barrels.Could this be done cheaply or is it not worth the hassle .TIA

    If not worth the hassle I could be tempted to take it off your hands

    Buy another rifle unless you can get a cheap action that someone has damaged the barrel. That will be difficult because replacement barrels are easy to get in NZ from Killwell. Could never understand the sense of a two barrel package when you have to strip the rifle to fit the extra barrel and then re sight the scope?
    I have complete rifles in .17HMR and .22WMR.

    Might be worth a call to Killwell to see if you have get a bare action and stock?

    do you mean adapting it to another action that isn't a 455 CZ . . . if thats your question i would say yes, anything is possible but how much do you want to pay to make it happen

    i started with 1 sako quad and 3 barrels . . .. ended up buying another quad and selling 1 of the barrels

    its still a good idea if you want to change to another caliber or barrel maker . .. .

    The other option is sell the barrel and put the $$ towards a 17HMR. There is another thread on here I read just before with someone looking for one of these.

    By the time you buy an action, and fit it to a stock it probably will be cheaper to buy another rifle. Certainly worth looking into.

    CZ 455

    Thanks Guys , I wondered at the logic of selling a rifle with two barrels , it is not exactly the easiest thing to change over then resight , then change back.
    Will give Kilwells a ring , and see if I can buy a reciever or what ever I need, I guess the wood is easy enough but the rest may be a mission .
