A thread got me thinking the other day. Is it possible to buy a ruger alaskan 20" bbl in 375 ruger from the factory, have a gun smith locally put it on my ruger mkII m77 in 300wm? I already have a nice aluminum bed hogue stock on it, although kinda heavy compared to a regular one which I would check into that is made for the .375 ruger so I don't break this one.
It seems like it would be a lot cheaper than buying a new gun and selling the one I have. I am a one rifle kinda guy. I am just not sure if I have to buy a custom bbl or if factory bbls are available. I like the trigger so basically just swap the bbls and whatever else would need improved. What do you guys think? Who in anchorage does rebarrelling?
