View Full Version : Found Some of These On GunBroker

August 31, 2008, 11:52
Swede '96 receivers left over from when Kimber was building them up as sporters.
I was considering putting in a bid on at least one for a 6.5x55 sporter, or a 7mmx57.
Any opinions?


This particular one is "pinched," I linked it only as an exmple. He has others that are not and are perfectly serviceable.

just out of curiosity, what does "pinched" mean?

A 6.5x55 Swede would be nice, but I'm lazy so I'd email and see if he had a complete action with the bolt. Maybe a good barrel? Oh! Might as well get that stock too!

"Pinched"? = Squished? :uhoh:

"pinched" in British means "purchased, bought, gone" no longer available.

I lied in this instance. I didn't look at the pic, it still means what I said, just not this application.

Pinched, as in squished would be correct.
A gunsmith or machinist could restore them dimensionally. Probably using a custom made mandrel. Once the tool was made, it would probably not be that difficult to restore a bunch of them. It depends on how bad they are.
But, I'm not a gunsmith or machinist. So, I could be wrong.:wink:
