Interesting thought! I believe the case hardening is surface only but I am no expert and will have to look into this further. If re-hardening is necessary it just complicates the project and potential costs even more. It probably would be best to install an original Springfield breech block assembly and leave it at that. One can only wonder at why H&R would have chosen such a flawed design in an otherwise nice rifle. At any rate, thank you for bringing up an important consideration.
