    Can these guns be rechambered to .308? w/o rebarreling
    Is their any better aftermarket safetys?
    What brand/type of scope mount is better for this rifle?
    Is it better to get a different bolt that is already turned down or cut and weld the old one?
    looking at a 91/30. Do not mind the 7362x54r but I have .308 on hand.
    thanks again

    They cannot be rebarreled to 308. In fact I dont know of any cartridge they can be rebarreled to. Most scope mounts are for the rear sight, for a regular scope the best bet is to get a PU rail clone and a 1 inch mount. I think the Timney trigger may have a safety on it, but don't quote me on that. Realistically if you want a .308 buy a savage, a Nagant is not an easy gun to convert to anything.
