Brownells has a posting that anyone thinking of customizing one of the ol' Turk should check and read before rebarreling.
I matched up Swede barrel with the Turk barrel small ring threads and they are not the same. Check bolt lenght, maybe that's why mine won't fire.

Why would you want to go thru all that trouble on a weapon thats 60 yrs old? I cant understand why someone for the sake of a few dollars would meddle around like that on an old war relic rifle, when they can go out and buy a new sporting rifle.
It just seems to me that when people do this to an old military rifle they are destroying a small little bit of history.
Look at Australia-- they melted everything.
Doesnt Canada have very strict laws also?
