Re: REMINGTON M-700 BOLT HANDLE SEPARATION (As in Falling Off!)

TIG welding for short periods at the rear will not get the bolt hot enough at the front to change the lugs temper even without a heat sink. Drilling and tapping the bolt handle for 6-48's while still silver soldered on is the best way to go IMHO. It's done both ways however.
