Is there anyone in the Seattle area who can counterboare a M44 that I have. Thanks
Are you certain a counter bore is what you need? Perhaps a re-crowning might be a less invasive process?
The bore looks like a typical cleaning rod misuse job. No rifling in the last 1" of the barrel. Rifling looks good in the rest of it. If I leave a little oil in the barrel the first few shots are good, otherwise I miss the broad side of a barn. Not much to loose $75.00 rifle that looks good except that it can not hit anything. Counterbore would not hurt anything if done right. Otherwise I have something to put over the fireplace mantle. If a re-crowining would work that would be a first step though.
Works for me. I think I have contact info on someone that mentioned having one done in your area. Try to get that to you asap.
I have a lathe and can help you recrown your barrel. It's not a real big problem recrowning a barrel. It's a little more of a problem to rebarrel it. I live between Tacoma and Puyallup. E-mail me and I'll give you directions, firstname.lastname@example.org/
Catch you later,
