Remington Bolt Lock

I have a newer model Remington 700 that I would like the bolt to lock when on safe, like the older models did. How can I do this is there a part I can buy and replace or is it the trigger asm. that keeps it locked. I’ve had the bolt open up on me before when hunting I prefer it be locked. I know Remington made that change because of a law suite but I don’t want the bolt to open and I not know it.

Re: Remington Bolt Lock

If the bolt in your gun has the cutout for it, its as simple as replacing the factory trigger with the original REM/Walker style trigger that has the correct safety lever on it. If your bolt doesn't have the cutout you will have to find a gunsmith that would be willing to add it for you.

Re: Remington Bolt Lock

This might be an option for you. This was just a quick Google. I'm sure they make different types.

Re: Remington Bolt Lock

The cutout is located on the underside of the bolt handle where the handle meets the bolt body its about a 1/2" long. As far a trigger goes REM no long makes it so you will have watch the for sale section for old REM triggers or post a wanted ad. They are out there and come up for sale from time to time.

Re: Remington Bolt Lock

You don't need the whole trigger, just the safety. There was somebody on here just a few days ago wanting to go the opposite way. He was talkinh about chopping off the tang on his safety. Maybe you can contact him and make a trade.

Re: Remington Bolt Lock

Nimrodmar10 is correst you actually only need the safety lever. This will only be the case if you rifle is equipped with the old REM/walker style trigger, if your rifle has the xmark or xmark pro triggers you will need the whole trigger as the safeties are not compatible.
