  1. Bought Brownell's bolt forging kit. After ruining a couple of bolts, here is the first good one. Its a 44 turk with Redfeild scope mounts and cheapo dirt scope. Actually feels like a pro job.
    Need to reblue.
    Bed the action.
    Trim and fit handguard.
    The barrel muzzle on this puppy is tight. Looks partialy square.

    perhaps the novelty has worn off the turks, everybodys got at least one and are on to the next fad??? just a thought ( dangerous thing to do):fuss:
  4. Well the bolt bodies are still good, its the handles that are mangeled. Bought 2 extra bolt bodies from FAC and the blocks to do the job.
    Did a fourth one today, a Yugo bent bolt with only half the handle drop, that son of a gun gave me a fit. This rifle has the low scope mount. had to bend it in the base area. Had it in forge blocks 5 times.
    Thank God for the Dremel, got the yugo bolt looking good.
