personally I wouldnt...the gain isnt going to be much over the great trebly anyway...if you really want to be different ream it to .22 high power savage.....rimmed cartridge with a fair bit of grunt with benifet of .224 barrel you would be having a great rifle with huge selection of projectiles.

i seen a photo of a scout that had the pin removed and a threaded bolt inserted with a large nut on the end, and the fore end was cut away around the nut to allow this to happen

if you looking for cheap bullets and want to have short and short range bush rifle you might well be better off with a 7.62x39mm rifle (think AK47 round)
.224 is barrel diameter for .222 and .223
the .22hp savage is an older round that used a slightly fatter projectile size...not a cheap option unless you are a reloader...
have a good hard look at a bolt action norinco in 7.62x39mm with suppressor or if you want singleshot look at a bakail.

AR15, pull the pins out and it's broken down.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

The Baikals have a very good way of making them safe with a cartridge chambered, you squeeze the opening lever until you feel it lift the hammer to full co*k but not quite enough to open the action, then drop the hammer using the lever while holding the trigger so its no longer cocked.  The hammer is of the rebounding type so lowered its not in contact with the firing pin or primer.  Its very quick and easy to do (easier than describing it) and a quick squeeze and its cocked ready to fire again.

beat me to it armed tramper....they are possibly safer that way than an external hammer rifle as there is no way it can recock itself or the hammer get bashed if say rifle was dropped over bank onto rocks.....
we carry ours in the uncocked state all the time. if you take stock off and have a look inside at how it all works its pretty much the same as external hammer its just that its all hidden away inside. Wink

What happens is the hammer spring has two pressure points, the main pushes the hammer down against the firing pin and the secondary point pushes the hammer away from the firing pin.
So the mainspring has to be strong enough to fire and overcome the reverse thrust provided by the secondary point, which it does.
Uncocked is when the hammer is held just off the firing pin and that is a mechanical arrangement and is fixed.

The Baikal Triggers are more agricultural than a Russian Tractor...

Took mine to Scott Trail, and he lightened it down to 3lbs. Is fantastic now.

Mine's in 7.62x39 suppressed, with a 3-9 Bushnell banner. Use it for pushing out 180gn lead subs.
Is quite enough to hear the hammer hitting the primer..
Accuracy is about an inch at 75 metres when my hands are shaking with excitement.. Grin Grin
  

there is always plenty of time for procrastination.
