Re: Can anyone weld a 700 bolt handle on

I broke one off in the middle of a stage in a competition last year. Accurate Ordnance cleaned the old solder off, put two screws in the handle to locate it, and had a local company laser weld it. Turnaround was just over a week including shipping both ways. I don't remember the price now, but it was significantly less than expected.

Btw, the match was a team match, I grabbed my partners rifle and finished the stage- and we ended up with the fastest time.

    This here is what you need to do. He did one for me and it's smoother than any rifle I own. Just give him a call.

    I tig mine on and I charge 60 for a threaded handle or 20 to weld a handle back on. The customer pays shipping. That's a link to my smithing page and a photo of one I welded a while ago. I don't have any other way to upload.

    This is one of the first ones I welded I've welded about thirty of them since this one. I will also be cerekoting in the next week or so.
