If someone were thinking to commission a one off reengineering of the internals of an action, that might blow the budget. Maybe, someone might contact Steve Earle to see if his Fraser rook action was available, and spend the gunsmithing budget to turn it into a rifle.

I have no reason to pick on the highlander action, but I can't get myself past just seeing a rectangle. I'd suspect some machinist in the past figured they could bang 'em out easy.
