Here's a suggestion that hasn't been mentioned. Probably for good reason.
I thrive on these kinds of challenges and a long winter is coming up.
How about sending the rifle to me to attempt to sort out. That is, get to the real reason she's a bummer.
Only cost to you would be shipping and FFL fee at my end.
No guarantees except that it won't be blemished or otherwise made worse.
I provide all reloading components and equipment.
there will be no machining, honing, metal work without your permission and then done only by recognized quality smith if approved.
Any bedding, rebedding, pillars, skim would be done by me, if it is determined necessary.
It would make a fun project to document here.
Just tho't I throw this out.
