    Brownells sells the reamer and sleeves that you're looking for.

    I've re-sleeved chambers. If you don't want to go to the expense of purchasing the tooling, I can sleeve it and ream it to SAAMI spec. I use 4140 for the sleeve. It'll be a little stronger than the original bbl. $150

    I once had a Ljutic barrel that had been sleeved in the chamber. It wasgood that the shells fit again,, but the sleve was only about i1/2" long. Every shell came out with a cut "ring" around it. Ruined every hull I shot!! Be sure that whoever you have do it does a sleeve as long as the empty shell or you could have the same problem. Paul

    I had Briley resleeve the chamber of my DB-81. They are the ones to send it to. Very reasonably priced.

    Vince,
    Out of interest – why did you need to have the chamber of your DB-81 sleeved?

    Regards
