I picked up an AII last week at a local gun flea market. It’s a .243 Win Heavy Barrel with hinged floorplate, two stage target trigger, all original with light handling wear all over. The bore condition was unknown and unfortunately after a thorough cleaning and two range trips to begin load development, I think the bore is on its last legs if it has legs at all. I would love to find another factory barrel to replace this one and take it to local groundhog shoots for factory class competition. I tried Accu-flite and no luck. So this plan seems unlikely. Next idea is to rebarrel as stealthily as possible. Match the original contour and bluing, thread the muzzle and include a flush-turned thread protector. I have a 6BRA reamer and dummy rounds feed smoothly from the mag well. Any thoughts or ideas appreciated. I don’t want to dismantle or further devalue this gun but I want a shooter.
