PTG Oversized Bolt Problem
I had my smith put an oversized bolt in my rem 722 took it to the range and it miss fired several times. Appears that the firing pin does not protrude through the bolt face enough. I tried several other firing pin shroud assemblies and they all stuck out the same. Best I can tell the bolt is too long or the threads that were cut into the back by PTG were not clocked correctly to put the bolt shroud up against the back of the bolt body properly. Is there a way to machine the firing pin shroud that would allow the pin to travel forward about .005" more? If I seat the primers flush they fire however if I seat them below flush they won't fire. I would rather modify the firing pin assembly rather than making a face cut on the new bolt, rehead spacing etc.
