I think i will just leave it in the case like it is. Im scared that even after putting a 26" barrel, pillar bedding stock and truing action it still may not shoot all that great....
Grumpy, might I suggest doing what you want to do, but do it on ANOTHER action. I know this may be the hard part, in finding a left hand magnum action, and build it from the action up. A few of us here have done that, and I am doing that as we speak.
And when you do, do all of those things that you are afraid won't make it shoot any better. They DO make a difference. All that " trouble " does pay dividends on paper, and across the field with a critter out in front of you. It is spelled " confidence".
I just did see a 7 mag " lefty" in a ADL synthetic recently, so they are out there. And I can tell you first hand that pillar bedding and " glass bed" the action works wonders.
