SAR 3 locking bolt?

Discussion in 'The Powder Keg' started by Dale, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. I've been meaning to ask about this but I've just plumb forgot to....but, does anyone know if the SAR 3 is/is not equipped with a bolt lock or is the bolt supposed to/not supposed to lock back on an empty mag?

    I went to the range recently and they got very aggitated that I couldn't lock my bolt back for range safety inspection before they cleared the shooters to go in front of the firing line.

    Instead I just stuck a white rag in the ejection port and let the bolt go forward to show the bolt, at least, was not fully forward.

    I was just wondering if the lack of mine to lock back indicates the way it's made or a bad safety feature.

    The SAR's don't have that feature, but there is a conversion safety you can buy that will hold the bolt open when you lock it back manually. It won't hold it open after the last shot, though. HTH.

  3. Thanks Calvin......any idea who distributes them on line?

    Can't find them now, but I will. Check the Shotgun News, as I remember seeing them advertised in there, Dale.
