I'd drive the whole mess into the dirt like a tent peg before I'd buy or sell something like that!!

I'm thinking the bolt nose may be expanded. After blue printing and a new bolt you will have a first rate action to build on.

Have an expert look at it would be my advice.

If it extracted the brass it probably is not damaged beyond repair.

It should be taken apart and throughly inspected though.

Yea the rifle and leupold scope are very new it only has a scuff marks from where he dropped it when the incident happens, i just took a look at chamber with a flashlight looks normal. I inserted my 30-06 bolt in it and is cycles very smooth and it also fires. I haven't shot it yet, but tomorrow il see if i can get it inspected. Hopefully its an easy fix.
