Yes I would agree normally a diy rebuild would not be a good idea, but I have rehabbed a lot of metal objects (machinery, guns, sheet metal) and have the tools and know how to do as good of a job as anyone. I would really like to find a different barrel but since these are so rare that will be almost impossible. The only thing I would be worried about would be destroying any intrinsic value that it might have, but as been discussed this one is so far gone that it cant be worth more than a Mosin. I am going to get all vintage parts using ebay to rebuild. I probably wont be starting on this until next winter anyways, I have a couple of other projects that I have to complete.
