    Rem 700 \"blueprinting\" question?

    ...are there certain things to look for in a used action which might prevent it from being successfully blueprinted? how about those which are pretty "used looking" & appear to have been fired alot? especially wondering about appearance of lugs etc... thanks so much for your input... Larry

    Larry,
    I have worked on several Remmy actions that had 6 digit serial numbers- that puts them pretty much older than me!!! and unless it has been hacked on or been rebarreled 27 times or had some kind of catastrophic failure, it can be trued up.
