Re: Re-Barrelling question
It's a great rifle. But, as you start customizing, you'll find your choices for smiths, stocks, triggers, bottom metal, magazines, and other parts are much more limitted than Savage, Remington, or even Win 70.
You might consider selling/trading for something that's a more popular build.
Just throwing that out there... It's a nice rifle and it'll get the job done.
