Any legal or practical reason I cannot, shouldn't purchase a genuine barreled receiver and swap my parts over?Any gunsmithing involved?
Legally the serial # part (the receiver) IS the firearm. The rest is just parts, and parts is parts, except to certain collectors.

You will need someone with the right gauges and experience to check and possibly set proper headspace if you are putting the bolt from gun A into gun B.

A possible practical reason not to swap is the possibility the parts on the gun you have are not exactly GI spec. Something worth being sure of. I'm not familiar with the CAI M1 but anything not made for govt contract COULD be slightly different. Shouldn't be but its not impossible.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
