I have a Win. Trapper. I want to get an action job. What does the gunsmith actually DO?

A lot of an action job is polishing and trueing surfaces. It's VERY important not to change any angles on any of the components (hammer, sear, trigger, etc) or destroy any hardening as this WILL affect the safe functioning of the weapon. Taking off only a couple thousandths can drastically change the dynamics of the components. Unless you really know what you're doing leave it to a pro.
