Just wondering if anyone has swapped barrels between a long and short action Deviant, the actions were manufactured in the same year.
Would like to know if there are any differences in the design etc
Thanks

That’s before Defiance accounted for pre-fits and published tenon prints…rarely is a short and long head space measurement the same. If you have both actions with no barrel on them, measure from the recoil lug face to the bolt face...depth micrometer is best.

Good luck!
