    Lapping the lugs will impact the headspace. Might require the barrel to be set back. Unless the gun isn't shooting accurately, I'd leave it be.

    Agreed!! If you are not set up to do the complete job, leave it alone or get someone who knows what they are doing to do the work.

    Gunsmiths are well worth their wages.

    Get it lapped and trued, maybe bedded while it's there.

    Conversely, don't fix what's not broken.
