Question for Gun Smiths

Well boys it sounds like my Bolt for my 6mm-284 is toast. Remington will not send my smith or anyone else a bolt they want the rifle which I am not going to send a $1500 custom rig to those butchers just to get a bolt. Anyone have one they want to sell? I am looking for a REM 700 Long Action Standard bolt face.

There is a gentelman named Dave Kiff of Precision Tool and Guage that will make you one for around $150 if I remember right. I don't have a link but if you do a search you might come up with it, if not I'm betting one of the 'smiths here can hook you up.

Thanks Winmagman I found their website. They want $125 bucks for the bolt body and handle so Remington can Kiss my grits. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] My smith knew someone made custom bolts for Remingtons but he could not remember the name of the company. Thanks again!!!

Re: Question for Gun Smiths

Dakor,

What was the damage to the original bolt that prevented it to be functional?

Not questioning anything, just curious as to what was found out on the bolt front.
