That's not too bad. Are the ones from Frankfurt new recievers, or are they old ones?

the nice thing if you plan on rebarreling, is the range of options in caliber selection. myself, if going the route of rebarreling an action and building a custom rifle from the ground up, i would go with a less common caliber than what was available commercially. that's just my thoughts.
I'll keep my eyes open for a bubbafied one, or I may just get either the 1903 receiver, or the k96k barreled action.
For now, I'm wanting one that I can easily get ammo for around here. I think I'll probably go with .223. I love that round.
Later on down the road though, I will probably build one for uncommon ammo. I have also always wanted to make my own, one of a kind, wildcat, so I may do that instead.
