The gunsmith mentioned here rebores to .35 caliber from slightly smaller bores. Is there someone who will rebore from .22 to a larger bore?

RMB, it looks like there are still a few guys out their reboring. Try typing into the google machine, walla!!! There they are. But with upcoming govt. policies and more tax’s on small businesses it’s a crapshoot who could survive if any. So? Why would anyone want to seek small business opportunity any or . Best to order your rebore from one of the above posted links now, don’t think WalMart or Costco is going to offer rifle rebore services. But, once the little guys are out of the way, who knows? Good luck!!!

I believe a significant problem with this thinking is that one ends up with a non standard caliber and modern rifling, along with a most likely hideous new stamp on the barrel. That concept might turn a classic or antique into a utilitarian piece? Lining isn't a bad idea at all, for some situations.

Why assume a non-standard caliber? Most rifles came in more than one. Example: my son has an Oberndorf Mauser stocked by a good British maker. It's an 8x57 with a worn out bore. To make a 9.3x62 via reboring will give it a new lease on life and a better caliber too. I just didn't set out to discuss relining, OK?

Why a 9.3x63 ? A 35 Whelan would be much better and less bore removed

Is Classic Barrel still in business? I know at one point the backlog was years long and phone and email both went un-answered.

MC, Because Mauser never made a 35 Whelan and also because there's no diference in ballistics.

To Address Craigd,
When JES did mine I asked they mark it under the barrel up by the action if they felt they needed to mark it as I have an engraver that I have do all my barrel markings when I have them done. They marked it under the barrel up by the action as requested and I had the two the did engraved where you would normally see the caliber. So the markings do not have to be Ugly and unlike a lined barrel there is no tell tail ring at the muzzle. I would not hesitate having them do a custom rifle or one of value if the bore was shot out.

I talked to them last fall when I started my current project. Just called them and they answer the phone. They were saying about 16 weeks as I remember. Haven't had any contact since I decided to go with the new Krieger barrel
