Totally unacceptable tig weld. If you're a "welder" that should not require a "grinder". Definitely not a professional job...And to further add after giving the rifle with its newly fitted PTG bolt a good workout today back with the original load developed for the rifle by the original poster but using my "****** old dirty brass" as he put it. Everything extracted easily and perfectly 100% and accuracy was as usual stellar.
SO apparently the problem was not me or my reloading practices, my failure to clean the rifle properly or indeed or anything else I have done.
Maybe it was the shoddy series of attempted repairs he or his gunsmiths did to my bolt after the handle came loose the first time?? Something which he steadfastly totally refuses could be the issue in any way at all.
Up till now I have refrained from posting pictures but here is a picture of the Tig job and you can see the remains of the attempt to screw it on and.................if you are reading this KiwiGreg, you were given every chance to put it right!!
I'm still spewing that I had to pay a third party more money to fix it when you couldn't and would not admit you couldn't and that it was everyone elses fault.
Old bolt is hanging on my gunroom wall now to remind me some people cannot be trusted at their word.
