Blueprinting/Truing Remington 700 Action by single point cutting.

Factory Remington 700, note the huge deformity on the face of the action, can't expect too much from factory productions.

2 hardened ground bushings of appropriate diameter are placed inside the action, a hardened ground mandrel is placed through the bushings to indicate concentricity of true centerline axis.

Action is aligned to true centerline axis, concentrically to .0001 of an inch .

Dykem layout blue is applied to the action, cuts will later show silver.
Single point cutting the internal threads to true centerline axis.

Threads partially cut, newly cut silver surfaces are true to centerline axis.
