Reply To: Changing barrels, caliber on RAW HM1000X
Yes, I have. There’s really nothing to it, and when you have a barrel and probe in a different caliber available, it can be done in 10 minutes.
Jus a matter of loosing 3 screws on top of the breech to remove the barrel, remove barrel, loosen 2 setscrews of the probe, unscrew probe, mount other probe, mount other barrel, adjust probe by rotating it in or out to adjust it to the barrel, and you’re done.
I bought a .30 cal HM1000x and turned a .25 BSA barrel blank to fit it to the RAW’s action. It’s likely you can also order a different caliber barrel and probe at RAW, but I can’t say anything about the cost..
Another possibility is to buyi a LW blank, and have it turned by a machinist to fit the RAW action.
