Well.... I got my new drill rifle today. It's a real beauty. It's a shame these were ruined. Oh well, thats why we are saving them. I've owned this rifle about 4 hours now and have got striped and ready for the welder. I'm going to resore 3 this time.

Good looking rifle. It should clean up well and the cutoff weld doesn't look that bad. Would be nice to see the finished pictures when completed. My "last" drill rifle is scheduled to arrive today.

Good grief the metal got hot on that one! Looks like whoever welded it held it on there too long. Whats with the cartouche stamps at all angles like that? I have never seen that before. Looks like someone used it for practice.

No idea. That stock is for sale.
So here is my hair brained idea. I want to convert one of these to
22lr. I've been researching a little and everyone keeps referring to an old shotgun news article but no one had the actual article. I think if I can get my hand on a m1922 Barrel and bolt I will be golden

I've had that same thought. Seems like a a drill rifle barrel could be fitted with a .22LR liner (would need to machine a bushing to fill the 30-06 chamber). A new bolt body and striker could be modified with an offset firing pin. Feeding from a magazine might be difficult, but could be worth trying. An interesting project for sure!

There was a m1922 barrel on eBay a few weeks ago. I think it had a buy it now around $200 or $250. There was also a complete bolt for sale on this forum for $150-ish.

That project would be far easier with the proper .22 RF barrel than cobbling a drill rifle barrel. I used a M22 to make a repro "Rifle (sniper's) USMC..etc" with a genuine GI "C" stock. It is "pretty neat" except that it weighs noticeably more than the .30cal.... Good Shooting. ...
