    Hi i was shooting yesterday. About my 5 shot i had a stuck case. I had a guy work up s loaf for me becaise i was having a hard tome getting gun to shoot accurately . This man settled on a load of 90 grains h 1000. . I was shooting 89.5 grains. Anyway the bolt would lift up but not go reareard. I lifted it up and taped on it with a cleaning rod no luck. A called a guy i trust he said wrap the handle and tap on it with a rubber mallet. I did and now i have a two piece bolt the handle came off. Does anyone know a gunsmith that can attach the handle back on with like it was
    Need some advice
    thank you.

    Don't go through the nightmare I am going through right now. Make sure you send the barreled action in and not the bolt only.

    The action and the bolt need to be sent together in order to get the bolt timing correct. Gary

    Hope the accu tig guy can get it right. He said he could time it and didn't need action.

    Any follow-up to this? How did it turn out, if AccuTig did the work?

    Should you fire it before you have re-cericoated to ensure everything works properly first?
