Model 12 lrpv bolt heads

I have a model 12 lrpv action that has the standard bolt head and I'm wanting to change it over to a magnum which bolt head assembly do I need to get all I'm seeing on midway are the controlled round feed style. Will this work or not.

Thanks,
Nathan

Another question do they even make a magnum push feed bolt head for a short action or is the control feed all they make.

I wonder if a WSM would work with maybe a different extractor.

Re: Model 12 lrpv bolt heads

I didn't even know Savage had a controlled round feed. Anyhow, I think you are looking for Savage part number 103960 or 100094. Brownells has them in stock for $22, here is a link: SAVAGE : Bolt Head, Magnum, Right Hand (855-000-003) - World's Largest Supplier of Firearm Accessories, Gun Parts and Gunsmithing Tools

By the way, I reserve the right to be wrong.

That link is for model 110 series actions the bodies on them are about a half inch longer than the bolt head bodies on the 10 series. The only thing I can find in the short action series is control round feed bolt heads. Savage Arms Bolt Head Short Action Model 10 to 16 Left Hand Controlled Round Feed Winchester Short Magnum (WSM) , Remington Short Action Ultra Magnum - MidwayUSA


Does anyone know if you can use a control round feed bolt head in place of a push feed.


Thanks,
Nathan

Re: Model 12 lrpv bolt heads

Nathan,

I'm not sure this is accurate in all Savage cases, but here's is what I did, and why, on a Striker.

The Striker started as a 22-250 (standard bolthead) I went to a 6.5 wssm ( mag bolthead). I tried the only magnum bolthead I could find, a LA magnum one. It wouldn't go because there is an indentation on the inside of the bolt body on the short action and a corresponding inlet on the bolt head, the LA didn't have this inlet.

I wound up sending the LA bolthead to a smith to have the inlet milled in to it. After that it fit and functioned perfectly, cost me $50 buck about 4 yrs ago.

I'm not sure if all SA bolt bodies and heads have the indent and inlet or not, but at the time it was the only way I could find to get a push feed mag bolthead on a SA bolt.

You might want to PM geargrinder or hammertyme on this site, those to gents have forgotten more about Savages than I'll ever know.

Chris

You can use the controlled feed in place of the push feed and it will extract the empty, however it will not eject it you'll have to take it out by hand,
