i NEED A BOLT FOR A 8MM mauser. Straight or bent, either will do.
Midway USA MAY have a bolt. I know they have quite a few parts.I've checked several places like Numericks(??sp) Buds, and a few more. They think they all have the last one. I'm hopeing that someone has one laying around and tired of looking at it11 lol
I was thinking I could submerge the bolt in water and heat the lever only for bending. Is that how he does it?From what I have read, there are aftermarket bolts made as 'bent' bolts, but they are pricey. An old gunsmith that lives next door said he knows how to heat them and do it. He showed me two on a couple of his guns and they looked real good. This guy has more guns than an armory!!
