Aho All

I have a Enfield 303 What I am wanting to know is if I can cut down the barrel at home I have put new stock and Scope on it. If this should not be done at home can anyone tell me where I might get a new barrel in .308?

Eagleman, you can cut it yourself. You want to make sure that the muzzle is square to the bore when you finish. Then crown with a brass round head screw chucked in a hand drill. Load the screw with a mild abrasive. You might just consider letting a smith do it. It would probably be about the same price as a replacement barrel. YOu can get barrels from Numrich Arms, for about $40.George
