Fully Blueprint Package - Wilson SS barrel included
You send in your action/bolt or barreled action, and we will supply the Wilson stainless barrel (+350 for a Wilson carbon wrapped), labor to install and shipping back. You pick the contour, chambering, twist and finish length.
We begin the Blueprinting process with the action. The action tenon is opened up .010" and new threads are cut concentric to bore. The action's locking lugs and face are squared and trued to center of bore. The bolt's lugs both front and rear are squared and trued center to bore as well as the bolt nose and face. All work is dialed into .0001" and single point cut to less than .001" tolerances.
The above blueprinting is much more precise than simply running a tap through the existing threads... All metal warps during heat treat and running a tap through is only cleaning up the threads appearance - chasing threads with a tap will not make the threads concentric to bore. To ensure the threads are concentric to bore the action's tenon needs to be opened up at least .010" and new threads will need to be cut. Lapping the lugs and squaring the face is NOT blueprinting. We encourage you to ask the Smith what EXACTLY they are doing for "blueprinting" services. You might be surprised at what exactly they ARE NOT doing.
This blueprint package includes the Wilson non-fluted barrel; barrel install; and FREE shipping back in a hard case. Add $350 for a Wilson carbon wrapped barrel.
