Thinking about cutting 4"s off the barrel of a pre 64 model 70 250 savage. I think it would make a heck of a truck gun shooting 75grain Vmax. I was thinking a cutoff wheel for the barrel and a chamfering tool for the crown. Let me know what you guys think.

Why not just a hacksaw and a file. Just eyeball the cut and file off the junk - oops, that would be the whole rifle at that point.

Because the hacksaw keeps binding up against the workbench vise. This ain't my first attempt at something like this.

Great idea, you could also make a suppressor for it using a toilet paper roll and duct tape.

Best of luck,

Or with some black paint and a cheap brush he could replicate this gem...

If you're gonna turn it into a tomato stake, leave the extra 4 inches on it. As wet as the ground is, it may hold better being able to drive it that much farther into the mud.

Weld a tire iron onto the barrel and use the gun as a breaker bar. Those pre-64's make great household tools. Have one in 257 roberts carbine in my toolbox for cracking loose rusty bolts.

I just saw the Mythbusters where they proved that bending a barrel will not affect it's leathality.

So just bend it so you can shoot around trees. Or better yet, bend it 180* and take care of this idea once and for all.

I really hope this was a loaded question. 'Cause I'm going to try to keep coming up with loaded answers.

All joking aside, I believe finding a good team of competent gunsmiths would be your best and safest choice.

I've used these guys in the past and recommend them highly.

Lets' not turn this into a universalaslum topic.

This forum is for sharing ideas and knowledge.

That's a fine looking rig, Wild Bill.

This is the product I'm thinking about using for my stock. This is a budget project and I don't want to trip the coin for a Hogue OverMolded stock.

Schweet !!!!


Don't forget to roll the gun in sand between coats of the Plasti Dip for enhanced grip-ability.

dremel tool with a cut off disc, to clean up the checkering,
That seems like an awful lot of work when a simple wood rasp runs 4 LPI with each pass.

That is fine for the stock but not the barrel. A few coats of rustoleum would be best for any metal parts. After all is said an done it will be a nice compact weather warrior.
