Complete accurize. 0f your Rem Actions. This includes single point truing of action, threads,locking surface trued, receiver faced and bolt raceway reamed all in one fixture. Custom PTG bolt with Sako extractor, extended bolt handle. Bolt is then helical (spiral) fluted for smooth operation in very close tollerances. *$400*

ADD *$50* for eccellerated firing pin.

John Hinnant has an excellent, detailed booklet with complete instructions, drawings, and tooling drawings for Remington actions. I'll watch this thread, and if you don't find it on the net, I'll post more detail; publisher, etc.

Hinnant says that all 40X actions are blueprinted at Remington, so if you can get one of them, it's supposed to come blueprinted.

Brownell's also has some of the tooling for blueprinting Remingtons.

What school did you go to ??

I would have thought that blue printing an action would have been one of the major lessons in building a good rifle
