This receiver is what you need, if you want to increase the life and accuracy
of your firearm.
The replacement receiver is accurately CNC machined, from a 17-4 stainless
casting. This will provide more strength and closer tolerances, and a receiver
that you will probably never wear out.
The receiver has a second hold down screw on the rear, which allows the receiver
to be securely fastened down in the stock and bed, if you choose to.
The barrel port is threaded (3/4-16) which allows the barrel to be screwed in.
With the receiver securely fastened in the stock, the barrel can then be free
floated; whether you thread your existing barrel or add a new barrel, the
accuracy is greatly improved.
With the help of a fixture (which can be bought from M.O.A. Corp), the
replacement receiver can be installed working at your kitchen table, with little
gunsmithing skill required.
With this replacement receiver and a good replacement barrel (I recommend
Douglas Barrels, which you can buy already threaded and set up with the
extractor groove cut), this set up and using the rest of your stock parts, you
should be able to shoot less than 1/4" groups at 50 yards. Of course, you have
to do your part. To shoot well, you must use good ammo.
When the conversion is completed, you will have spent money to improve your
rifle; but the cost will be less than most of the more expensive custom guns,
and will shoot just as well or better and you did it yourself.
