    I have a P94S Finnfire 22lr varmint barrelled.
    I bought it with the original length barrel but have now acquired a cut down 16 inch barrel and want to be able to change barrels myself. I have some basic engineering skills and tools to do this but I hope someone can point me in the direction of a simple foolproof and accurate method of doing so.

    Much appreciated.

    Here’s the reply I got on another British forum of how to change the barrel. its very easy and I went from the standard 24inch to a shortened 14inch barrel and as you can see the accuracy is very good, in fact those off you thinking of shortening the barrel should not worry. But the process of changing barrels presents no problem at all. As below;

    Easy..... take the action out of the stock, you should find 2 hex screws (5mm I think) clamping the barrel in place. You’ll need a long Allen key to undo those as they’re pretty tight and to give you better control.

    Swap the 2 barrels aligning the extractor groove with the bolt. Insert a fired case into the chamber, stick the bolt in and with the assembly vertical and just the weight of your arm on the barrel holding it against the bolt...re-tighten the 2 bolts.

    Your arm pressure is enough to headspace it off the rim of the fired case and still give enough feel to the bolt. You ‘might’ have to re-visit if you change ammo manufacturer.

    I got a .17mach2 barrel from Richard Pope at Swift Precision but he also does .22’s etc......and I’ve stuck 100’s nay, 1000’s of rounds, through these using this headspace method.

    There was a thread years ago where someone had drilled 2 corresponding holes in their stock so they didn’t have to faff about removing the action from the stock.

    Cheers,

    Fizz

    What are you doing with the old unmodified Varmint barrel?

    I take it you are the chap who questioned if I had the spare barrel on my FAC on the Stalking Directory.

    Well Rog,
    The spare barrel isn’t for sale, when I do sell the barrel it will accompany the rifle and I shall be much older and very grey by then.
    I have several rifles (all of which are on my FAC) but the one that gives me most pleasure is the finnfire, considering it was manufactured in 2003 its as accurate today as when it shot its first subsonic.
    I too like a bargain, don’t you know and considering the spare barrel cost me £85 I think I got one, a very accurate one.

    I wish you well Rog

    Hi Bryn
    Good answer
    I thoroughly enjoy my set of three Finnfires too and like you won't be parting with them any time soon
    I have a Varmint with a Lilja barrel I want to return to original spec
    ATB and good shooting

    Nothing can compare for accuracy, looks, balance, and sheer beauty than my Brno No. 1 made in 1949! It was a sleeper and is in mint condition. My friend Peter has a P94 S and I have never seen such a gorgeous tiger striped walnut stock. The stock blank would grace any Holland & Holland or John Rigby bespoke rifle! Well done Sako!
