I agree.

Add $50 for a target model, add another $100 for stainless, and you're at $450.

Original box, rings, papers, and so on - add maybe another $50.

Personally, I would never give any...

While I never dry fire any of my rimfires, the OP should be okay as long as the firing pin stop pin is solid steel and not a roll pin.

@MtnTX - If you find your bolt has a roll pin, ask Ruger CS...

I'd start by installing a "gunsmither" barrel block. It'll hold your barrel straight so it free floats in your new chassis.

Went by our west WM store this afternoon. Shelves were pretty bare except for AutoMatch. But they had 48 boxes of that sitting in the case.

I didn't buy any though, because I've still got plenty.
