    A thousand years ago I used to work construction and we had to provide our own tools. Tools went missing on job sites so I painted them dayglow pink. Never lost another one. :)

    "I'm sorry, I can't do that job for a reasonable cost."

    Rifling isn't an issue. What is an issue ie whether the chamber can handle the reaming. Depending on which Springfield, it might be fine. Proper measurements will tell you.
