I have a model seven 7mm-08. It's a little bit older gun with blued barrel and wood stock. I have thought about turning it into a light weight sheep gun. It's already short and very packable. What would it take to put it in a light weight synthetic stock or even putting a new barrel on it? Is a new stock something I can order off the internet and switch right out or is it something I should leave to a gunsmith.
I rareley shoot over 400 yards so I think it would be a good caliber?
(ok, it's actually my wifes rifle but she rarely sheep hunts so she won't mind a few changes)
What's your thoughts?
Any good gunsmiths in Anchorage area?
