    I bought a Win. Mod 70 from I guy I worked with a couple years ago. I knew he had marked the the trigger guard with his name, but missed that he had done the same on bottom of the bolt. Two different gun shops I have taken it to said it was to deep to remove, so is there someone who can replace the bolt body in the area ? Thanks

    Numrich sells stripped bolt bodies. What year, caliber are you looking for. The average price for post 64 rifles are around $110.00.

    You are going to have the headspace checked when you're done changing out the bolt body, right?

    I'm going to have a gun smith do the work. To do this is beyond my limited knowledge.

    netcarrier I forgot about Wolfgang. When I get the bolt housing I'll have to go and see him.
