Any tips on getting a variation through for two barrels in the same calibre ? (switch barrel Mauser)
I have open sights on the existing barrel and quite enjoy using them for practice at the range, plus I have in mind they could be useful as a 'back-up' for future trips to Africa and perhaps also for running boar etc. However, I would also like to get a moderator for UK stalking. I would like this to be on a shortened barrel for 'handiness', particularly in close forest and obviously this would need to be threaded. So in order to avoid having to ditch the open sights I would prefer to do this on a separate barrel, switching between the two as required.
I would really like to stick to 30.06 for both as I am a big fan of the calibre, plus there are economies of scale on the ammo. A quick word with my FEO suggested that they normally only consider 'two of the same' where the application is for target shooting in different disciplines, though he had some sympathy with my approach and suggested I apply anyway.
I just wondered if anyone else had had a similar experience ?
