Rechamber .32-40 to .32 Special
I have been looking at a Marlin model 93, Special Smokeless, in very good shape, for a fair price, but it is in .32-40 caliber. I don't reload, so I want nothing to do with that cartridge.
Has any bodyever had a lever action rechambered or otherwise converted from .32-40 to .32 Special? I have run across several old postings where people said they bought an old lever action marked .32-40 on the barrel, only to find that it had been converted to .32 Special.
But, I can't find any real info on who does these types of conversions, or whether their are operational problems that go along with it. (Such as feeding, bolt face, extractor issues).
JES Reboring, and other specialty gunsmith sites, don't mention this conversion.
Any info would be appreciated.
