Schultz & Larsen "How To" Series

The Switch Barrel System allows you to switch between a Standard and a Magnum Calibre on a single rifle in a matter of minutes.

As you may already know, the Schultz & Larsen Rifles feature a stunning switch barrel system which allows you to remove a barrel from your rifle and fit a different barrel. This is very useful for many reasons, including changing barrels between different calibres, replacing a barrel which has been extensively used and shot out, and also great for travelling to be able to compact the rifle down into a smaller case.

In this video we look at switching between calibre groups. We start by changing a .270 Win. barrel to a .308 Win. barrel. Now as these are in different standard calibre groups, the magazines need to be changed as well as the barrel. So you switch out the Long magazine for the .270 Win., to a Short magazine for the .308 Win. It's as simple as that.

But when changing the calibre groups from a Standard Calibre to a Magnum Calibre, you also have to change the Bolt from a Standard Bolt to a Magnum Bolt. As well as the Magnum Magazine and the Magnum Barrel. We demonstrate this in the video by switching between a .308 Win., to a .300 Win. Mag. barrel.
