I have a beautiful all matching 1895 Chilean mauser with tiger stripped stock. The only problem is that the barrel is shot out-very, very little rifling left- when you slug the barrel-the slug is smooth. At 50 and 100yrds-bullets are sideways. My question is what are my options with this??? Could relining the barrel work??? I cant find a 7x57 military barrel to swap out. What about cutting new rifling and enlarging the caliber??? What are some options??? I would like to keep it in original form, if all else failers I guess I could make a sporter out of it-I dont like this option-please throw me a bone here.
