    Jager SA off here seems to do good work and at a good price.
    I haven't personally had done anything done by him mind.

    Redmist on here does rebarrels aswell I believe

    Gives you somewhere to start.

    I spoke to James (Jager) a few months ago about the exact same thing. I also started a thread on which people posted some useful insights.

    I can certainly be done. UK gunsmiths might not be able to get reamers etc in a hurry though.

    If you can get them yourself (e.g. holiday/friend in the US) you might well make the process more likely to occur.

    If ever I actaully go through with it, it will be James I ask to do the work.

    Good luck,

    Try Steve Bowers he did one for Penyard not so long ago.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
