    Are you "tweaking" a factory rifle without installing a new barrel?

    If you are I would suggest having the action bedded, the barrel floated, the trigger adjusted to 2 pounds, a new crown and shoot it.

    If you are having a new barrel installed, that is the time to work the action. Don't waste it on a factory barrel which would have to be refitted...

    i didint say you had to use gre tan tooling to have pride in your work, but if you are blue printing a rem action and dont have the right tools for the job you are not going to blue print the action the right way and in fact you could make the action junk, i will reword what i said. if you take pride in your work and have the right tooling then you can get a good job by any smith.

    petty stuff

    Kregg, i read your previous post and understood the point you were trying to get across. guess the "pride" word is what really tripped up the other fellow. by the way does your record still stand for the longest witnessed pd kill in VHA history?
    guess if one got anally technical really what was being said; is that the gunsmith must be one that pays attention to accuracy and small detail in machining practice. also he must have accurate and well made jigs for tooling. there that should satisfy the technical junkies.

    Guys, thanks for the votes of confidence, but right now I'm pretty well snowed under with this new house construction and my time for rifle work has been pretty limited since we started the house. It would be nice to be able to hire all the work done, but unfortunately finances won't let us do that.
