Yep fellers 223 ''''' It has Been cold Up Here in Utah so I had a little extra time on My Hands . So I installed a 223 barrel on this feller . When It Gets warmer I will give her a go and Post The Targets DD
It Took some Thinking and a lot of compairing parts . It is Not a throw togather deal I started with a Savage 223 small pin bolt head . Had to tig the marlin holes up in the bolt body build a spacer and a few jigs . The magizine is also a savage stagger feed witch I had to wield a tab to retain it .One of the biggest deals was getting the fireing Pin Produsion set But Now I have some blue prints .
The gun Is Bedded and scoped Ready to Shoot ... If The weather warms up above 30 I will go to the range.
I have test Fired It Looks great DD Thanks For the Kind words fellers
I'd call those pretty good groups for a 16.5" barrel and by someone who was half-frozen. For some reason, it's warmer now in Utah than it is in East Texas.
Dan, have you ever thought of modifying an X7 to use a blade-type ejector instead of the little button one (I don't know what it's called)? I've thought about it and I think it wouldn't be hard. It would require some work on the bolt head and an ejector would have to be cut out of sheet steel, but I think it could be done. I'm just saying this in case you get some free time (i.e., if you get snowed in ).
