6.5 Arisaka

Just acquired one of these and found the action to be mint. Apparently the barrel was cut down and someone made a half attempt to sporterize it. Found the chamber to be very rough and the bore is in not too good of shape.

Pulled the barrel off. Got a hold of GRT's videos about sleeving the bolt and blue printing the action. Bought a 6.5mm with a 9 inch twist 28" long from Shilen. I am going to chamber it in 6.5x 284.

Haven't found an aftermarket trigger. Tried all of the trigger makers and Brownell's. Anyone out there knows where I can get one? It would save me a lot of time trying to re-work this crummy thing.
