    I am in need of a bolt stop spring for Weatherby Vanguard - not sure if it matters but it is for a Rem 7 mag. I looked in Midway, Brownells and Numruch and can't find it. Looked under Howa also.

    Where can I get one of these or something that will work? I already tried a ball point spring but it is too big in diameter.

    Thanks for the info.

    My nephew is having an issue with his bolt stop as well. Did you ever find a solution?

    He hasn't visited here in over 2 years - I doubt you'll get a reply.

    Call Weatherby - they are very good about helping you.
