Browning Maral, rechambering to a smaller calibre

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m interested in buying a Browning Maral, the only problem is that the smallest they come in is .308, unfortunately I’m only licensed for a .243. As the .243 is only a necked down .308, would the gun conversion be as simple as just rebarrelling a .308 gun? Also how would I go about doing this from the FEO/ legal view?

You could pay for the rifle and have the dealer send it to someone who re barrels and collect as a 243 and no need to notify your feo.The cost wouldn’t be worth the rifle.Last quote I had at having a barrel was nearly £800.

I really do tire at the crazy system.  A 243Winchester is equally dangerous as a 308Winchester if someone abuses it and is careless in it's use.  I know this doesn't help you a lot but just wanted a rant.   Choose another make which does 243 Win there are a few about for that sort of money and shoot equally well .... yeh I know this doesn't help much either BUT spending that amount on just having another barrel fitted seems a bit crazy to me.

I have a thing for Brownings and I absolutley love that rifle, so I'm kinda stuck! I wish the FEO would allow me to have a .308! I agree a .243 is more dangerous!
