    Recently I've seen Time & True offered as a service on several Gunsmith sites. I know what it means to true an action but I don't know what "Time" refers to.

    Thanks

    I believe they are talking about Timeing the bolt correctly.

    It can also be talking about the entire process's that are working together when you are lifting or lowering the bolt handle or pulling the trigger.

    Everything must be happening at the appropriate "time". Cocking, sear/trigger engagement, primary extraction, lug engagement.......

    Matt,

    You're quite welcome, I had a similar question not too long ago when I stumbled to the link.
