Savage 24 Barrel

Greetings fm Washington!

Looking desperately for a Mdl 24 barrel. .22/anything will do. Seems someone has took a file to the breech end of the .22 barrel and the firing pin won't reach!

FWIW, a simple filing of the barrel face will not be related to the FP sriking/igniting the cartridge, since the rim is supported by the rim recess and not the bbl face.

Your M24 might have it's .22 FP tip broken off.

Assuming it is the barrel and not the firing pin, a cheap, effective and if done right accurate fix it put a barrel insert in the barrel and re-chamber it.

Basically amounts to drilling out the barrel with a special drill (sold by brownells), and gluing (I use Brownell's Accra Gel) or silver soldering in the barrel blank (after you cut it to length), Use a 22 LR Chamber reamer and crown the barrel (blank).

I've done several and they turned out to be great shooters. Brownell's instructions say it can be done with a slow electric hand drill, but I like doing it on a lathe.
