Interest in converting milled kits to work in stamped

Occasionally I will see milled kits for sale at a very fair price. Most of the time the barrels are threaded and can't be used in a stamped receiver unless they are turned down on a lathe. I would imagine that there are probably quite a few milled kits out there that aren't utilized for this exact reason. Soon, I will have access to some very nice machining equipment, including some very expensive lathes. I have been thinking about buying a few of the milled kits and turning down the barrels so that I could use the kit with a stamped receiver. If I were able to turn down barrels for a very nominal charge, do you guys think there would be an interest in obtaining a batch of milled kits for this purpose?

What is the quality like normally on a milled parts kit? I have heard it is suppose to be superior, but have never owned a milled kit.

I bought one of the 129.00 Bulgy kits from Centerfire, the thumbhole stock one... the barrel accepts a standard 23mm trunion, like on the polish kits that were recently so popular. The wood is pristine, and these kits are absolutely BRAND NEW in every way. they don't come with trunions, though. the rear wood stock (thumbhole) would be VERY easily altered to fit a standard rear block. I have yet to build it... awaiting my receivers as I rant...
GREAT kits, you would not be disappointed with quality... they are new... comes with a little 5 round waffle mag, and no bayo lug... I guess this is an SLR??
