Re: Blue printing question? Lapping
Your observations is spot on for a perfectly trued rifle. When the bolt face and lugs are all trued to the bolt raceway, only the bottom lug will touch with the firing pin and trigger are installed. If you lap it to bear evenly on the lugs when cocked you will be at least .001" out of square. Yes people check this all the time and will ask about it. Leave it alone and finish the rifle. I have to explain this to almost every custom rifle customer that is receiving their first custom.
Some kids want to be a fireman or a doctor to help people. I wanted to be a gunsmith.
