Re: Can't believe my luck!!
You might be more lucky than you think. Often when you send a rifle in for factory repairs, they'll do "custom" type work. It's usually gonna cost ya a few bucks to have a bolf face trued, you're getting it done free! They'll also check the action for anything else that might be wrong or slightly off, so you're getting a free de-bugging and/or partial trueing of your action out of the deal. I'd bet that you'll end up with a rifle that will shoot better than the average Remmy off the shelf. The problem is that you're S O L on the cabin fever while you wait. I'm in NW Montana, so I'm feelin your pain on the cabin fever as well. Hope the repairs go quick for ya.
I like things that go "bang"... I love things that go "BOOM!"
