so I recently found this:

http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=F11903RSC&name=Smith+Corona+1903A3+Stripped+Receiver+and+Bol t+Action&groupid=12

and was wondering if it'll be cheaper to buy a complete rifle or start a new project?

I wonder how many of those are from drill rifles?

Keep in mind a bare action is not C&R, so factor in FFL transfer prison sex and DROS fees.

If you go forward with this project, I have the tools and experience to get you barrelled up correctly.
Let me know if I can help.

Do barreled actions count as C&R?

If so, send me a PM, Captain Chau.

I may have something for you.
