    WTB788 short bolt

    Thanks for the info. However, I'm in need of only a short bolt, ie: 222,223 or 22-250.

    WTB 788 bolt

    Olio. The bolt length is what I'm concerned about. Rem 788 bolts for 243-308 are nearly 1/4 inch longer than those made for 223, ans 22-250.

    Wisners

    Try getting a hold of Wisners on the coast. I know they make bolt bodies for the 0.308, and maybe he does or would for the 22-250. Wisners makes many parts for the 788 BTW. If he doesn't make them, he should be able to help you locate used stuff.

    WTB 788 bolt

    Hi y'all. Thanks for all the leads and suggestions. I love toying with and shooting 788 rifles. I now have one in 22-250 (barrelled action and stock) that is missing its bolt. I've been aware of Wisner's for several years and have spoken with George in the past about his work. However, at this time, I hope to find a complete short 788 bolt. Someone has to have a bolt that lost its barrelled action.
