So, I posted here several months ago that I got a transferable Breda 30. It is a Costa Rican contract firearm as noted on the receiver. It is also marked on the receiver as 7mm... On the form 3 it is listed as 7mm...</p>
<p>Now, I just got around to getting it "range ready"... I discovered that the barrel and bolt are 6.5. This was a rewat so my assumption is the original 7mm barrel was plugged so the person who restored it just replaced the barrel and bolt with more readily-available 6.5 parts. The barrel was still packed in cosmoline, so I assume it was not fired. Question: is the conversion from 7mm to 6.5, just a barrel and bolt swap? Are there any other parts I should check? The gun does not have the oiler top cover, but I can apply oil by hand before loading. </p>
<p>Thanks for the help! <br />
