    I just took delivery of an A1 in 222 that has a badly pitted bore. I was thinking of a rebarrel to 6PPC. Apart from a new tube and some boltface work does the magazine require any work to get it to feed properly?

    perazzi.
    have an L461 in 6.5 grendel. getting it to feed was work. used a much modified mag box from an 6mm ppc m491 , opened the action rails to suit. works quite well.
    good luck buying a ppc mag box these days
    the sako a1 repeater i own in 22ppc has similar mods, but of course done at the factory.
