Re: Question for Gun Smiths
Fiftydriver I was on the phone with the smith yesterday and he had me take the case out of the bolt face following his instructions because he thought the same thing nothing happened just the case was stuck. Well after I got the case out I noticed right away that a piece of metal was missing on the inside rim of the bolt and it looked like there could be a hair line crack in the bolt face I did not have a magnifying glass so I can't be sure on that. The ejector was also missing a chunk of metal out of it but that really is not that big of a deal. I told him this and he said he would have to see it in person but he said it does not sound good. I have someone taking the rifle down to him this morning and I should know what the Diagnosis is sometime this morning. Well my next question is if I do end up ordering a bolt body from Pacific Tool is the Sako extractor version better then the standard REM extractor? I said the bolt was toast because I do not think he can fix it and even if he could I do not think I would feel comfortable patching a bolt back together if you know what I mean. At least when it is down there he can check the whole thing over and make sure nothing else happened. Thanks for all the help everyone!!!
