Well according to my information back in the 80s or early 90s someone got the idea of fixing a PKM machineguns barrel on the reciever of any type of hunting rifle can be used as a good target rifle.So he went to DARRA ADAM KHEL and ordered one for experiment which turned out to be very useful.up to this day in quetta most people use this rifle for target shooting it has even replaced the old .303s and different people now order the gunsmith with custom stocks and finishes.Once the barrels were sold at 2000 then the price got upto 4000 and gradually upto 8000 RS.Because of the tension in the Khyber agency I've heard the price of the barrel has gone upto 28000RS but dont know if it is true or not.Anyways this rifle is an accurate rifle with the price tag ranging from 35000 to 60000rs.

Use of LMG (Russian ) 7.62x 54 R barrels in Rifles.
Actually I started this by having 6 rifles made for Sardar Naseer, Adnan and Mushtaque, Bilal and and few others, in 1989. The bullets cost at that time was Rs .30 per bullet (ten bullets for Rs 3/-). The ammo was in abundance, and compared with 7mm (which they were shooting at that time) at the cost of Rs 40. They were shooting almost every day in friendly matches.
That time the barrel cost Rs 2100/- , A P14 or P17 US Rifle cost Rs 6000/- or so and I had the Stock and barrel thrown away and used the strongest action, which combined with the chrome lined machine gun barrel and beautiful walnut made a lovely rifle for training children and target shooting at almost no cost.Even now the ammo costs around Rs 20/- per round or so.
Almost all of Baluchistan Target Shooters now have these rifles.

Yes a scope can be mounted. These days I do not think the old P17 or P14 rifles are available; also the RPK ang MG barrela are also diffcult to find. As times change so does the availability of new materials and ideas.
We are upto new experiments now, you see the main thing is cheap ammo. Now a days Peshawer is loaded with cheap 556 and 762 US and UK ammo along with LMG and M16 barrels

sir will u share your success stories?
sure.
The 556 ( 62 grain green tip )is avail for between Rs 18 to 22 a bang and the 77 gr is a bit cheaper; and the 762 at around Rs 30/- This makes the ammo immensely cheap when compared with any other.
The 762 barrels comming in Peshawer from across are for between 9 to 20000/- and the 556 in various lengths and configurations are avail from about 20 to 70,000/-.
If you have an old M16 from vietnam era found in abundance at one time but now hard to find; as the upper flat top receiver can be changed and a new barrel from 14 inches to 20 inches with rifling twists from 1 in 7 to 1 in 9 can be installed. This make an M 4 look alike.
Thanks to our friends across the Durrand line Peshawer is glutted with goodies like Trijicon Sights, Sniper scopes , Upper flat top receivers for the M16 ATVs, Barrels of all US makes and types and Rifles and machine guns. I don't want to delve into the PB area so I guess if any one is interested he should go to Peshawer
