Okay guys, let's not get carried away. I got some helpful posts here and some some input from two smith's I trust. The consensus is to relieve the offending surfaces and shoot it for groups. If it still won't group, have my smith pull the barrel and correct the problem. Makes sense to me. The action was pulled off a new donor rifle and blueprinted by the smith and a barrel chambered and threaded. I wasn't there, nor was the seller, so we can't speak to what really happened. The seller never fired the rifle. He's more upset than I am and said he would cover all costs to make it right. For all I know, this rifle is the only bad one the smith ever built and I won't be responsible for harming his business, based on one rifle. Everyone of us has made mistakes, so he'll remain unnamed. I will update this thread when the rifle is 100%. Thanks to all.
