Another parts- bin special I'm bringing back to life.

I picked up this badly chopped, uncrowned Husqvarna M46 in 9.3x57 to play with. It's barrel was previously cut, trigger was missing & it'd been badly drilled & tapped for scope bases. None of these holes lined up.
At some point, a Williams receiver sight had been mounted & it looks like the screw snapped or something & the remaining sight base (I assume) was ground off & the gouges filled with JB Weld. The original sight base & dovetail was also ground down, a bit.
What can i say....i have a real soft spot for short barrels!

I got dug into her this afternoon.

If anyone happens to know what thread size the screw into the forend is supposed to be, I'd be very grateful for the info!

Right now, I've stripped all the bluing & polished the barrel to 800 grit, installed a modified M98 Timney trigger (I was sold a mispackaged part. Thought it was cheap...) re-cut & crowned the barrel & re-drilled & tapped the scope base screws for blanking plugs. The rear most is done, I'm just waiting for the front 2 to set up before i trim & polish them.
I also got the surface rust off the bolt shroud & handle, stripped & cleaned the bolt & blued both parts.

Yessir.
I'm putting it all together for a good friend of mine. He does 99% of his hunting for hogs in Florida & 50 yards would be a reeeally long shot. I've got NEGC front & rear bases ordered & I'm going to go with a white or silver bead & shallow V.

I'd really like to put a silver line down the rear express sight, but i haven't quite figured out how yet & google isn't hrdelping!
