    Open your one out. I had one out of the US about a year ago, couldn't sell the thing. Got rid of it cheap...

    Open the bolt face, fit a M16 or Sako extractor, feed ramp and rails, bolt stop, change bottom metal and source a full-length mag. Job done.

    That is probably the route I will go down. Does anyone have experience with importing complete PTG bolts from the states?

    I looked at it in an idle moment, was thinking about making a Rem40x style .22 trainer with the 5 shot mag. Was going to be an absolute mission at best, a complete fricken nightmare at worst. It's the export licence and documentation that is the pain in the arse...

    Find someone that already has the paperwork and tack it onto an order. I think Gunworks had some PTG gear a while back, they might still be importing...

    Yes took six months and repeated phone calls from myself and gunsmith to get itar sorted out, hopefully things might have improved now, I think they were letting international orders pile up, I tried gunworks who told me they quit dealing with PTG due to delays... You could try but be prepared for a wait....

    If I said dealing with PT&G was a gigantic PITA, it would be the second greatest understatement I have made so far this year.....
