Mattg203,
As is your gun will shoot 8 mm as set up coming to you in cloth belts Or Izzy metal links !
Remove the left side cartridges front guide by pulling the retention pawl pin on the bracket (careful the pawl is spring loaded !) . With it removed in the front you should have a cylindrical pin in the front of the right side plate that was covered by the front guide , this is the front 30 06 cartridge stop .

With the 30 06 stop in place and the Izzy RSP rear stop all you need is a 30 06 barrel screwed into the barrel extension and Head spaced correctly , the full booster assembly installed (hole should measure about .718" ) in place of the flash hider and it will run 30 06 just fine in cloth belts , Izzy links or US 30 06 links !!

Eek i forgot the booster question from the auction pics you have a 2 piece booster on the side and one orifice plug extra , the one installed in the booster is i believe the 30 06 and the separate one is 8mm , get a 7.62 X 51 plug .......

You can shoot 7.62 X 51 by installing a Izzy front and rear cartridge guide , 7.62 booster plug and a 7.62 X 51 (308) barrel in cloth belts or Izzy links not US 30 06 links !!

Member BarrelXchange offers conversions for 7.62 X 54 Russian but it requires modification to the top cover and i believe the extractor ,barrel extension and reworking a 7.62 X 51 Barrel chamber , using cloth belts or Izzy links !!
He also offers a 7.62 X 39 mm conversion using propitiatory plastic links ( this one i do not believe requires top cover or extractor/barrel extension, booster plug maybe modifications !) .

All these caliber changes are only possible with an Izzy bolt ,not a US GI bolt !!!

So you see your gun can run 5 different calibers , 7.62 X 51 , 30 06 ,8mm , 7.62 X 39 ( i am fair sure ) with only a barrel swap , guide and booster plug changes without modifying the basic parts other than the guides !!
And 7.62 X 54 Russian with top cover/extractor/barrel extension/booster plug and 7.62 X51 Barrel modifications !

As far as the A6 barrel/shroud your gun comes with the Izzy bipod so the barrel should fit with no issue because the barrel is fitted for the standard shroud length of any A4 the Izzy`s got their hands on ,they kept the same GI A4 shroud length ! The GI A6 shroud ( the portion with holes ) is not the same length as a standard A4 because it was designed for only the far front fixed position bipod and needs the bipod bearing piece to accommodate the pod`s collar si it fits the booster/barrel`s standard length ... The A6 barrel is contured to reduce weight and up the rate of fire a bit .... The Izzy pod is adjustable along the shroud where ever you want it ,just pull the pin down and slide to the next cooling hole , it is a great design innovation over the GI type as far as i am concerned ......


Muddy enough for ya :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: ?

Turk Only if you want to replace the topcover a number of times due to them being blown ....... Romanian is top quality but more expensive but not as expensive as topcovers are ........
