PTG Bolt assembly?

I have a Rem 700 SA in a 223 boltface. Can I just buy a new PTG 308 bolt and be ready to build a 308 rifle?

Yes .

And I would recommend the M16 style extractor over the Sako.

Opening a bolt up and installing an extractor will cost almost as much as a new bolt.

I would recommend going this way.

Good luck

Is it difficult to install the M16 extractor?

No not on a PTG bolt just order it for a Mini M16 extractor and all you need to do is install the extractor

I would get the integral bolt handle
