hey guys. I am seriously considering making my first custom gun modifications. i have a stock rem 700 PSS, w/ leupold mkIV M3 10x fixed, with mkIV rings. I am most likely never going to change the stock, (i know i'll regret saying that in a couple years...lol).
the first steps i want to take are...
an enlarged bolt knob. I contacted HD rifles to know avail to double check on how long it takes to install a badger knob on my bolt. I also like the idea of the pinning the handle to the bolt for extra security. my question is does anyone know of reputable gunsmiths that do this? what is average turnaround time and price?
also soon i want to get the trigger down to around 3 pounds. is this something i could take into my local gun shop and get done? or is this something i would have to send off to a tactical gun maker?
after these, i want to get the action trued and a heavier fluted barrel.
thanks for any tips.
