Could I take out my Steinway action and put it in another Steinway and give it a whirl?

You might get lucky if the Steinways are the same model, but the short answer is - No.

Once upon a time a prospect liked the sound of one piano, but the touch of another. New pianos; same make and model year. Dealer said: "Simple. I'll just have my tech switch the actions. Sold!" After observing a Marx Bros. juggling act for an hour or two, he determined that voiding the contract would be cheaper than switching the actions.
