I have been looking for a decently priced shooter grade 32-30 SRC for some time now, and have been unable to find what I want. I have recently found a nice looking SRC in 25-20 at a very decent price, but with a bore that looks like a sewer pipe. I was thinking of buying it, and having R.A. Hoyt bore it out and rechamber it in 32-20.

I wonder, however, if the cartridge guides in the 25-20 are the same as those in a 32-20, or will I have to replace them.

Anyone here have information on a conversion like that?

Ummmmm. Did you read my post, where I said that had been looking for a decently priced shooter grade 32-20 SRC and had been unable to find one?

No problem. I've done that sort of thing myself.

The only difference between these two, is the caliber itself.  Everything from wood, tube, receiver and all internals are the same for both calibers.

Okay. That's good to know.

Thanks for your help!

Does this same rule apply if you put a model 65 barrel on the receiver in .218 bee?? Or does some work need to be done to the carrier and or cartridge guides?

I would assume the internals are the same for the '65 models as they are for the '92 in .25-20 and .32-20  caliber.
