Re: WTB .30/.32 recoil spring, buffer spring, recoil spring case

Carl - thanks for looking in! The base receiver/bolt half for my .300/.35 convertible happens to be a standard .300 Savage bolt. Basically, I just thought "hey everything seems to indicate this will work" if I just swap the .35Rem barrel front end onto the .300 Sav back end. I remembered the very mi...

Guys, I've been keeping my Model 10 Remington on the far back burner with it being stripped down to a nice pile of parts in the "tool shed", so to speak.
