I bought a 10/22 from a fellow recently that had the Magnum cocking handle on it . I was wondering , is that and a barrel all I need for the 17hm2 conversion ? If so , what barrels in 17hm2 are you guys getting the best accuracy from ? Are any of the light wieght barrels a good choice ? oh yeah , for those of you who own a V2500 stock , beware of the factory magnum cocking handle , Got in a hurry and didn't check all the little details , and after a few rds , noticed my stock had an ugly burr raised in the ejection area were the bolt handle was too wide for clearence on a complete rearward motion :eek: , oh well , live and learn.

conversion barrel.

Out of everything that I have seen or read so far, Blazer037's Volquartsen THM 16" carbon barrel shoots amazingly, and extremely consistent. He has had several methods utilized for bolt resistance, and the barrel just plain is "a real shooter". He has it "In the 8 or better all the time" on a USBR practice target right now. :t

Well I finally managed to get an hour to go shoot my Eabco conversion. Not too much though just enough to get the scope sighted in at 25 yds. But mostly I wanted to check function. No misfires, jams, or stovepipes. So far I think this is a great set up! At 25 yds. I had many 3 and 4 shot groups that were 1 ragged hole. Very please with it. I will post more when I get a chance to shoot at 100 yds or more.

What is the final set up that he is using? I have not pulled the trigger on this conversion yet, waiting to find what the most reliable and accurate set up is.
