any gunsmith should be able to do it. I suppose it depends on how far it's been "customized", but if you're intending on restoring to it's original military condition it would depends on part selection and your preference.

Regarding cost, at a recent gun show in Costa Mesa, Harry Kashiwabara of HMK Enterprises gave me an estimate of less than $100 for rebarreling a Yugo M24. Suggest you call around and ask the smith in your area as your rifle may cost more/less to rebarrel depending on it's condition.

for ref, call HMK Enterprise in San Gabriel, 626-308-3895.
Good luck:)

Thats what it cost me to put a good grade .308 barrel on my m48. Which is the same as a Mauser 98. The barrel was the cost. 50.00 to change it.

How do you like the rifle now? Did you have to modify the magazine for it to feed well?

My gunsmith charges $150 to chamber, thread, crown and install a barrel.
