Hi, Only new here. I am looking for a model seven S/S bolt body, it is a 308 action and I am wanting to change it to 7mmWSM. Anyone know where the best place to get one from is.
Thanks Paul

Bolt

I think you will find that the only part of a SS Rem bolt that is SS will be the handle. You may want to contact Dave Kiff at Pacific Tool and Gauge. He makes replacement bolts for Rem and Stiller actions. He may be able to help you out. DocEd.

Modify thr Rem Bolt

Hi you can just have the 308 boltface opened up and a Sako extractor fitted.

As already stated you can also buy a new one from pacific precision.

There are 3 gunsmiths + Shawn Carlock, Kirby Allen and Nathan Dagley either could do the mod for you it is a fairly simple operation for a good gunsmith their are other good gunsmiths on the site so I would go that way.

Cheers Bill

your in Australia?

Hi ring Geoff Grenfell in Bendigo here 03 54413380 he did a Sako extractor conversion yesterday he can also get spare bolts in from the Us. I just got one in for my model 7 as I wanted a Sako Extractor and a spare complete bolt assemblie. I Help Geoff out in his workshop, He is the Australian Distribiuter and importer for Lawton Barrels and Actions. He was the official armourer for the Commonwealth Games.

The cost is around $325 to have it Bored out and machined to a Short mag size and supply and fit the Sako Extractor . Give me a call. Also what do you want to have it rechambered to? You should also have the Wyats extended mag box fitted if using as a repeter and you will need feed lip works to make it reliable. If Peter Kay can't fit a sako extractor don't touch him it is a simple machining operationfor a true gunsmith.

Cheers Bill

If I'm hijacking I appologize, and disregard!

I have a Rem600 in .222 without a bolt. I thought I couldn't get another bolt for it. If I can, what kind of price should I expect? Not looking for a quote, just a ballpark.

Thanks,
