What bullet are you planning to shoot?
I was planning on casting bullets in the 500-535grain range in various designs
Ebay is your friend, not cheap, but friendly.
That is a clear contender the CZ magnum action.
You don't need to free float the forend. He guys in the past rested on the barrel in one of the null spots. An easy way to locate the null is with a stethoscope. Lay it flat on the barrel, tap gently along the lengthwith a dowel of brass hammer. You will hear the sound change from a ring to a dull sound. There are usually 2 or 3 null spots. The old time guys had a metal slider that was clamped directly to the barrel in the null spot when shooting from a rest and shot amazing groups.
I worked for a guy that specialized in single shot rifles. I never saw a free float forend on an original 1885 Winchester, either high wall or low wall, in a couple dozen I worked on.
Wasn’t thinking about original at the time, should have been specific. The Miroku’s are free floated or can be easily if they touch. They are mounted on a hanger. The “O ring” modification that is done on hand i rifles Also works well if you don’t want to get after the wood.
Have seen a few originals refitted also. I think it was Ron Smith in Alberta that does the gain twist barrels, who did the ones I saw.
