The 40X has a really large barrel tendon. 1.062" where as .750 is more the normal. So a competent gun smith or machinist could turn it down, cut the chamber off, re-thread, cut extractor slots and re-chamber it. About 400.00 unless you can do it yourself. The barrel is worth about 125-150 now, if you alter it, that number becomes 0. A new action that would fit your barrel is 1050.00 so either way its not a cheap to use that barrel. I would sell it, there is a petty good demand for a unmolested 40X barrel.
