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.

He does the very best job there is!!!!
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.
