Back in 1986, I got a new .270 ADL for Christmas. I love the rifle. It has shiny blued steel and an unattractive walnut stock. I've had a lot of luck with it but I really want to make it a BDL. While researching, I've been surprised that all of the trigger guard/floor plates for the BDL are aluminum. Was it always this way? Didn't they used to be steel? I don't think that doing a conversion is even worth it if I cant make it "period specific". Does anyone know if blued steel ones are available? Thanks a lot.
