A conundrum if there ever was one - an inexpensive way to make a swap barrel rifle.

You'd be better off, expense wise, to just buy another rifle in the desired caliber, instead of converting the existing one to a swap barrel configuration.

Sounds like you need to blame cleaning procedures for the obstructed barrel, rather than the firearm itself. No lectures here - been there, done that! I'm pretty careful what and how I run cleaning material down a bore, anymore.

If you insist on swap barrels, the receiver will have to be milled to either have interrupted threads with a set pin or thru-bolt to pin the matching threads or smooth shaft on the barrel shank. Then, there's the question of receiver length, bolt face diameter and magazine compatibility. Head spacing will be a major consideration.
