Is there any way I can do a trigger job on this model myself I WOULD NOT SUGEST THAT YOU DO IT, IT IS WORTH IT TO HAVE A GOOD SMITH DO IT FOR YOU, or is it too indepth and best left up to a well-trained firearm armorer? How much does a typical trigger job cost on one of these? WHERE DO YOU LIVE? NORMALY $30-$50
You can get several diffrent configurations of bbls from one "short chambered" to just a blank bbl with a .338 hole in it. A bbl blank will need to be chambered and threaded meaning the gunsmith will have to cut threads onto the chamber end of the bbl the screw onto your action and also cut a chamber. I would go with the blank my self, but it is up to you and your gunsmith.mmpoeth said:Do you know what proceedures are necessary for installing an aftermarket barrel? Can I just buy a "blank" barrel from one of these manufacturers and install it on my M70 or is there significant gunsmithing work that needs to be done to the barrel and to my M70 before I can actually shoot the modified M70 with new barrel installed?
