In case you are all wondering why I am so quite on the re-barreling of my Rem700 VSF, then it is because I am still jumping through hoops.
Firstly the matter was resolved to my satisfaction with Remington early Dec. From then on I had to track down a barrel, which is not that easy in South Africa. I finally found a local barrel which passed the test for quality after the gunsmith checked it out.
I then had to put in an application with our police for authorisation to alter the firearm.
I have just spoken to the dept dealing with this matter and they say that this could be finalized by this Friday23 Jan.
The gunsmith will then blueprint the action and cut a Palma match close tolerance chamber. I have opted for an unfluted 3/4 inch at muzzle barrel and length of 24 inches.
The rifle then has to go back to Pretoria to have the headspace checked by our Buro of Standards and proofstamped.
So, meanwhile I sit and watch the clouds pass overhead..........
