    Rem Mod 700 Mag Bolt for Rem Mod 7 bolt

    I have been on the hunt for a Rem Model 7 bolt & found a S/S Rem 700 Mag bolt instead, if any one has a Model 7 bolt & wants a swap Id be keen ?

    The 600 bolt fit the mod 7, I bought a mod 7 in .260 with no bolt and used a 600 bolt (changed the bolt handle)

    Really @nor-west I would of thought the 600 bolt would be rarer than a Mod 7 ?

    Strangely my buddy just got a Rem 600 with no bolt, so if you know a source please PM me ?

    I believe it is technically possible to shorten the 700 bolt to 7 length, but what a prick of a job...

    Yes I was thinking that by looking at it, part of the reason I bought it, but this is also a Magnum bolt face & just one too many jobs I think ?

    That's not too bad a job but you lose the factory clip extractor so $$$...

    PTG (Pacific Tool & Gauge) could be a source, but good luck with the import...

    It was a mission, but I managed to get a model 7 one thru PTG, a few years back via Mitch Maxberry, he was great but PTG not so much....

    I've had good dealings with PTG, but I did have a USA address for my parts to go to first. @mikee got a PTG bolt through his smith recently.

    Sure did. It seemed relatively straight forward. About 3-4 months by the time my smith had it then less than a week to have fitted. In my case barrel needed to be pulled and relieved for new style extractor. All up was just over a grand but the shipping 2 and from was not cheap as this was post christchurch when virtue signaling was in full swing

    I have a 600 and it only took 4 years of constant emails and phone calls to everyone and everywhere over seas. Either a straight good luck trying to find hens teeth or and one yes but they won't ship with firing pin)
    I ended up getting one made up from Dean maisey gun smith's in tauranga. From memory it was from a 700 and needed a bit of work to do it.

    @nor-west what did you do with the M600 bolt handle, I'm sure my bud would like that & he could fit it to a Mod 7 bolt in years to come ?
