Re: Remington 700 rebarrel?s

There are a lot of options for improving your action which including trueing and lug lapping. You can also replace the bolt and firing pin and trigger and recoil lug. I'm having a 300 RUM built on a 700 and having it all done. Talk it over with your smith and decide what's best for you but I would at least have the receiver trued and lugs lapped as a minimum. The next best thing to do would be have a Timney trigger installed.
