Just a question, if I wanted to get a pretty plain bolt-action in a strange caliber, like, lets say either .50 AE or .25 ACP, who would I need to go to?

If I am understanding your question correctly. Harrison Richardson make a break open in 50 AE.

25 ACP I doubt you will find a rifle made in that caliber. So it would be custom made and BIG BUCKS.

Hey there, Genius Bandit, welcome to the NGF from the swamp.

What is the purpose of those pistol calibers in a Bolt Action?

We might be able to help you a little better, if we knew what

you were attempting to accomplish.

The only real question here is...how much money do you have? If you have a lot, then any competent gunsmith should be able to help you out or steer you in the right direction. Thompson Center makes a handgun with interchangeable barrels in different calibers.

It's a hypothetical question; I'm more looking for names and links to people and or companies that could do it, and some examples wouldn't hurt either.

A barrel blank for 50 AE might not be too difficult. Of course, you would have to pay a

small fortune have a smith tap a 50AE chamber, and to retrofit a magwel and bolt action to it.

The 25ACP actually has a bunch of rifles available for it. Google "25 cal rifle".

I'll keep that first part in mind, but it looks like I finally found the 50 AE bolt I was looking for.


Enfield No. 4 conversion made by a guy named "Riched/SIA" on Enfield-Rifles.com. Here's the link to the thread
Also, goggled it, got a lot of air rifles and not much else. If that was supposed to be a joke, color me unimpressed.
