    If it is shot out it's still a pretty good price. It could be rebarrelled to .308. Even better.
    Light a fire for a man and he will be warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    just remember they as rule require i simple modification to the forend bracket to make them as accurate as modern guns if run of the mill accuracy is ok it should be ok as it is the modification is not difficult old editions of the American magazine rifle shooter have all the details,It may be on the internet now

    A little more work than a bolt action gun with no open sights.

    Chamber end needs some milling to allow for the extractor, and the sight rail needs fitting, but nothing a competent riflesmith can't do.

    So, if you buy it with a .243 slot on your ticket, do you have to surrender it to the riflesmith and then apply for a variation if you want another calibre, or can someone ask the riflesmith to buy it on their RFD ticket and then fill a slot that you already have for a different calibre when it has been rebarreled?

    Is the No1 really so different to the Ruger Stutzen? I can hardly imagine it can be noticeably lighter, handier, shorter or more pointable- and it doesn't have the advantage of a magazine.

    You'll have t find a gunsmith will to do it but it's just a rebarrel so not a hard job.
    That been said I would say stick to the same rim/base diameter so that the extractor doesn't need modifying and you'll have to realistically stick to the same profile barrel as what it came with due to the forearm hanger arrangement.
    Both can be changed but finding a gunsmith willing to do it in the UK may be tricky.


    As for acquiring it, you buy it and have it sent to your riflesmith and then they rebarrel to what's on your ticket. You then receive the rifle in that chambering.
