I have a project rifle that I'm starting and the action is a large ring Turk with small ring threads. I'm looking at a surplus m38 barrel, which will fit with my action perfectly. I was hoping I could get some feedback on using these surplus barrels. They are brand new (price is very reasonable), Swedish M38 Barrels in 6.5x55, still packed in the arsenal packing and greased. I know of the quality that was legendary of the Swedish mausers, but how would they compare to an average, new barrel that could be manufactured today? I am leaning heavily towards purchasing one, just thought I would see what others thought of these barrels.
