@Lonerider43 : Unlike most other actions, on an Omark action the bolt lugs interface directly into the factory barrel (or Black Mountain), not the action itself, so you can't simply fit a krieger or something without having an adapter made that has the lug interfaces machined into it and threaded for the aftermarket barrel.

PS.. I have heard of people using the old factory barrel to make the adapter from. Perhaps that is a cheaper option to consider.
