Re: Is a Winchester action worth building on
The Winchester action is a good action to build a LR rig depending on which generation action you have. The Pre-64"s are superb, the push feed models tend to have a weak extractor design and the earliest models, a sloppy bolt. The late model Pre 64 style are good actions, however, it's a good idea to have your gunsmith braze the serrated sleeve that press fits the bolt handle to the bolt body. I'm not sure if this has been corrected on later models, but these have been known to loosen at the sleeve on rare occasion. It's a simple step, and once done makes it a great action.
