Re: Belleau Wood commemorative, carried and shot
I think he's pullin' your chain. First, I think the only difference between a "Gold Cup Action" and a regular action, is the Gold Cup is tighter. They take the slop out of the gun. A standard gun has slop built into it, so it can work when it's dirty, or full of mud or sand. A Gold Cup, being a target gun, doesn't need that kind of reliability. The slop, though, means less accuracy (usually). It's a trade-off. Since the target gun has a tighter fit of its parts, it requires more work to make (which is one of the reasons it costs more).
Commemorative guns are designed to be bought and looked at and stored carefully, but never fired. Since they were never supposed to be fired, it would make no sense to put the time and effort into it to give it a target action.
If "it's a great shooter and never jams", what improvements are you trying to get? That's the best that a gun can be - that it always fires, and hits where you aim it.
