The cost far exeed its worth you can dump about $600.00 on this project and not begain the job. I have been in debt doing this for over 20 years, what did I proove? I could have bought a Weatherby for what I spent on this job..My wife of whom I accuse of being in PlayBoy in the 70s Is sick of it. When I tell her I am buying a barrel and its $400.00+ I start looking for the door and I duck. This is the last Springfield I will be Sporterising. just like the cigaretts, this is the last one. It just not worth it.you can buy a good Remington for under $500.00. A Savage for about the same. You may think you have a Rifle that cant shoot? change to a quality scope and you find it needs no changes..Add the costs before you start. Its not worth it.
