Re: Re-barrelling a Springfield
Deciding if the action is suitable for re-barreling can only be done "hands on" by someone who knows what they're looking at. Most all custom barrel makers will "copy a customers barrel contour" so there would be an almost "drop in' fit into the stock , depending on who fits the barrel to the action. Some charge a few extra $$ for that, some don't.
