    converting a .22lr into a .22wmr? can it be done ?

    I have a cz 452 style in .22lr
    its a synthetic/stainless rifle which i use for trapping mainly here in bc
    I would like to have it converted to a .22wmr if that is possible?
    unfortunately they dont make this model in wmr so i cant buy 1
    how big a job would this be if possible?
    thanks dan

    Sure. Pull the barrel and run a reamer into it. It can be done by hand if you are careful. I have done it many times.~Muir

    thanks muir
    how long would it take a good gunsmith to do ?
    would the bolt have to be altered?
    would the magazine housing in the rifle need adjusting ?

    Oh yes. The magazine would need serious alteration and you need to check feasibility of that operation. If that's your intention, a gunsmith is the choice. I was merely commenting on the process. No, the bolt is fine provided it has enough throw. Really, you're better off buying a .22WMR or stepping into a ballsey 22LR round like the Aguila Interceptor (40 grain at 1500 fps) or the CCI Velocitor.~Muir
