A new barrel for the RPLT42

The RPLT42 that we have is in need of a new barrel, this is not just a matter of the barrel being slightly dark, the barrel although cosmetically perfect externally is beyond hope bore wise, sleeving it is not really an option so all that is left is to source and fit a new barrel. I do know of an original profile RPLT42 barrel in Denmark however it will be fun to profile, chamber and fit one myself so that is what I am going to do.

First job is take some accurate measurements of the existing barrel so it can be duplicated precisely. Then drop the barrel off (I have a feeling this is going to be one of the interesting parts) Source a barrel blank, roughing and finish reamers and some gauges and get to work.

This will be a work in progress so I will update the post as I go along,

  1. The bolt on my RPLT 42 is over rotated so it will not go back into the receiver.
    Is there a simple way to rotate the bolt handle clockwise? Or do I have to take
    The bolt apart? If I do, how do I do that carefully?

    Thanks for any help,
