    Re: rebarrel marlin xl7

    Dangerous Dan and WYcoyote,

    Thanks guys! You saved me some (future) embarassment and maybe more!

    I was having sugar plum ferry thoughts about my pre-fit .338-06 moving from a Savage to my Marlin.

    Now I have a bit more to ponder.


    QUESTION:

    If you have a pre-fit (for Savage) breech trimmed for the Marlin extractor ........ does that preclude switching it back to a Savage?

    Would you then lose needed chamber support in the Savage?


    Thanks in advance

    DD would be much more qualified to answer that than me.
    I have a guess but will keep it to myself for now.

    Re: rebarrel marlin xl7

    I ordered the barrel for to fit the marlin just take off old barrel and put on new using a go gauge http://www.mcgowenbarrel.com/catalog4.htm. I sent an E-mail telling them what I wanted because their order form is not what it should be. took about 7 weeks to get it after ordering.

    Does anyone know if the barrels trimmed to fit a Marlin can then be re-used on the Savage?

    Re: rebarrel marlin xl7

    To be clear:

    Whether or not anything needs to be trimmed is a matter of individual bolt head and bbl measurements. Some may need to be trimmed, whereas others may/will not.

    My 25-06 swaps with a Savage barrel I have with no trimming required.
    Yes, they are the same thread and diameter. Savage barrel nuts use the same wrench as well.
    I'm a firm believer in the theory that "If it bleeds, I can kill it"
