I would like to know the TPI and diameter of the threads on a long action Belgian Browning Safari bolt rifle barrel. These are the "step" barrels. Thanks, Mike

    The only dimensions give in de Haas's book are for F.N..222 Bench Rest Action. They are the same as for 98 Mauser. 1.100 O. D., 12 "V" TPI, 5/8 length.

    Mauser threads make sense as many early Brownings were built on Mauser 98 receivers and a "step barrel" would suggest an early version. What kind of serial number does it have? Pictures would be good, especially of the receiver area.

    Rufe- That is what I suspicion, using my DeHass book. I haven't called Browning, Duck, and probably won't. I don't own the rifle yet Ern 98, but Item # 72833657 will suffice for pictures. I think these were made 1959 to 72 or so. I have a Sako action safari in 243 and one in 308. Those are 16 TPI and 1.00. Sorry I can't be of more help.Regards, Mike
