I think the main reason is lack of available after market parts and availability of used rifles
for don er actions.
Also some rifle actions lend themselves to accurizing better than others.
Some receiver designs are hard to accurize and people tend to avoid them.
The rugers have all ways been diffacult for me But I saw a poster that stated that he had it
figured out and could make them shoot better that normal.
I am glad because they are good rifles and the fact that someone has figured how gives me
some hope that I can do it also.
There are tricks that will help all types but some are trial and error.
In answer to your question ; There is nothing wrong with the winchester action if it is installed
correctly and has a good barrel and stock.
Quality control is always an issue with most factories so occasionally you get a shooter but
more often you get a lemon and that is what keeps the custom builders in business.
