Now, after all that, ask your gunsmith what he'd charge to blueprint your action with a new PT&G one piece spiral fluted bolt. If it gets up around $500, just order a trued action from PT&G. They come with the bolt I described that's fitted to the action for minimal "slop" (no need to shim). Ready for a new barrel. If you do that, order the trued action without trigger. Less money and you don't have to take the X-Mark Pro trigger they include with their trued actions. The actions come in Stainless or Chrome/Moly. I'd go with the C/M and have it Cerakoted if it were mine.
