Change of direction: RAR Conversion Project

I started a thread about a year ago about a 77/22 centerfire conversion. This has changed directions. I decided that the 77/22 was not the correct platform for this. Instead I'm using a Ruger...

I might eventually, I just figured that somebody might know. I'd never seen the IWS headstamp before and my internet search hasn't turned up anything either.

Thanks for the info. I looked up the Remington 580/581/582. The bolt face/firing pin setup is similar to the RAR. I'll see if I can find a cheep 580 or 581 to modify. If I can't, I'll pick up...

The body of the firing pin for the 77/22 is very thick compared to the actual striking surface. There will be overlap with either a slanted channel or a straight channel.

I chose a 77/22, because...

I wasn't thinking about case pressure and firing pin hole case deformation. I was thinking about the machining process. The 2 channels would overlap. Maybe I'm overthinking the process, but...

I was thinking center drilling the breech block as well, but the old firing pin channel will still interfere with the process. I think the old channel needs to be filled before a new one is drilled....

I found out about the 221 Askins in my research. He was ahead of his time. I wish the velo dog was still around, that case would make for a much easier conversion.

I did think about that, but I wanted something that wouldn't "change" the gun too drastically. I didn't want the chamber modified at all. I wanted a bolt swap to change from centerfire to rimfire...

That's part of the reason I got the Varmint model. Eventually it will get cut and threaded.

I'm still shopping for scopes... It'll be a while before I buy one, but all suggestions are welcome.
