Is it harder to true Win M70 actions than the round stock actions like the M700s? Can they be trued equally well if a gunsmith has the right tooling? Even with the M70 tooling, does it still take more time and care than the round stock actions?
Lastly, with the correct tooling, can they be machined as true as any other action?
I've heard and read rumors in the past that many smiths prefer to work on round stock actions. I presume the extra difficulty is associated with getting the M70 or other non-round stock actions positioned in the lathe so they're running true prior to touch up. But I've never had it explained as to why the additional fuss. Thanks,
