what are the differences in the new J bolt vs. the old style?
New J Bolt vs. old J Bolt or older regular bolt??
Older regular bolt assembly has different main spring which does not drag on the inside of the bolt body like the
J bolt mainspring does. The older bolt shroud does not have the hole drilled where the J bolt wart is located.
The guys at Brownell's told me the J bolt firing pin assembly can be replaced with the old style firing pin assembly with no problems. I have switched some of mine out successfully.
Also, I believe the J bolt firing pin assembly can be replaced by aftermarket parts.
The Remington "J-Lock" on there bolt was the worst idea ever (next to Hillary and politic's). the good news is that the J-Lock is an easy fix, you can buy a new assembly (firing pin, spring ,bolt shroud) from Gre-tan, darrell Holland,Sinclair,Midway and others. very easy swap.
second the gre-tan upgrade
Thanks guys, my senderos are 8 to 10 yrs old. Not the new style are they ?
Don't think so--the J Lock guns came with two green "key like" devices to lock/unlock the J Lock. The J Lock is a small (about 5/32 in. dia.) plastic fitting located on the left side of the bolt shroud. Very obvious, even on casual inspection.
thanks Jim, just haven't seen any of these in Wyoming yet...
maybe make there way out here in 10 to 20 years like everything else.... LOL /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
