    If the 788 belonged to my dad and I inherited it, It would go back to Remington to be fitted for a replacement bolt. Then it would find a place of honor in my collection. I think it is well worth it because it is now a family heirloom. Good luck. The 788 always was a better shooter than their flagship 700 series, that's why it was discontinued, it sold better and hurt the 700 sales. Take care.

    You can check with Wisners as well. Last I knew, they were fitting replacement bolts that they manufactured. They were super spendy (something like $400), but if it's worth it to you, it's worth it to you.
