    Welding on any Mauser rifle steel is a fraught exercise, the steel is well known for developing porosity and it gets worse every time its attempted, even with an expert on the TIG. I don't know why it happens but its well documented by more than one top custom gunsmith on a couple of forums (D Weibe on Accurate Reloading and an Aussie guy whose name I don't recall on Nitro Express). On a bolt handle its manageable, on a receiver, I'd say be very cautious about who you take advise from. Sorry to be so glum . . . . .

    Every tradesman makes a cock-up now and then (though seldom as bad as this effort!) and the true test of their ability is to make the job right without the customer being aware of it. In the instance I believe that the customer is owed another action without charge, and to have the job completed by a competent tradesman at no cost. The bubba should have the decency to cover that charge as well.

    Hey @FRST, I know of a cheap good condition Brno vz33 not far from you. Already drilled. Let me know if you need another action and I can put you in touch with the owner.

    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to draw it back.
