Tempering the reciver is the biggest issue id have. but with a few carbide cutters any thing could be done.
id love to see a broached an treaded blank to make a single shot no mag bolt action out of. there are lots of take off barrels out there cheap that could screw right on .
id love one for my 50 BMG .
If they can get $700 for a damm miled AK reciver im sure a lot of guys wuould pay $75 for a round tube with some slots milled into it an threaded on one end.
heck I could do it with a demill and handfiles with a drill press, and proper tap done it before
there was guy running the east coast gunshow circuit who had mauser 80% recievers, the 700 or any bolt action is based on the mauser platform with a few exceptions. some of these heat treat guys could possibly do these.
cutting them is the easy part heck anyone with talent can and if you use a mill its cake
