Re: Do it yourself Blueprinting

There is one drawback to the tooling. And that is reaming the bolt raceway. If you do that, then you will create more play between the bolt and the reciever. Then you would need to either put bushings on the bolt body to correct it, or you would have to buy a bolt with an oversize body.

When all that is factored in, you would need a lathe.

I think you would need to ask yourself if you want a 1 moa rifle or a sub 1/2 moa rifle.

In my opinion,

1 moa, the tooling would be fine.

1/2 moa or better, leave it to a professional.

    Um... Yeah. I think I'll just stick to the simple stuff.

    Thanks for all the advice.

    "To do a precision accurizing you will need precision machinery."

    Check out Dave Mason tooling for no lathe blueprinting. I suggest that this tooling will do a better job than most folks can with a lathe. A lathe blueprinting takes lots of skill as a machinist. This tooling is quite easy to use.............
