OLBIKER...if you have JES convert it to 38-55 I think you'll like the results. I've had a Winnie and a Marlin done in 38-55. Both are shooters.

Thought I'd seen a ghost when I saw your new avatar OLDBIKER. Ya see, that avatar belonged to Six_Gunz, a great guy and Marlinowners member who is no longer with us. Haven't seen that old bear move in quite a while...Sorry to hijack your thread Buddy, but I was taken aback for a moment there.
I can change it if it bothers folks here.

Good morning
It is for sure you will not regret getting back a well bored and rifled barrel. I have 3 caliber 38's JES has done and numerous caliber .405's and never a sad moment. The caliber .38 barrels by JES will not require over size diameter molds and the shooting qualities are excellent.

I especially love the 36 square bolts with the end cap on the fore stock, rather then the band. Not a lot of them around for sale at a reasonable price. Nice find...

Nice acquisition, Bob

It will definitely make a good 38-55

Order up the brass now it might get to you by the time the rebore is done.
