As a matter of fact, I don't think I could explain what the action of the gun is if I had to. I know I could probably google the basics, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a good source that started at the basics and worked into all this stuff.
I'm wanting to build my rifle up to be as accurate as possible but I'm the type that I like to do all my research and actually know what I'm looking at and reading before buying parts and upgrades just because it has high ratings on midway.com or this person tells me I need this and another person tells me I need that. I like to get all my facts and knowledge-base first. Thanks for any info guys.
It is something that is done normally when rebarreling with a custom barrel.
It is occasionally done to improve the performance of a poor shooting fire arm. but it requires
re-headspacing and that's why it is normally during a barrel change. (The expense of the work is
almost the same as a re barrel Minis the cost of the barrel and a full chamber and threading
The reason it is done at all is to make any action as close to perfict alignment with everything
and fit and finish as good as it can be. (Factory rifles are very inconsistent in this department
and sometimes need major improvements to make them shoot).
So if your rifle shoots well enough for you ENJOY IT and dont worry about have it blueprinted.
