    It should not be a major problem, I cut the old handle off and weld a new one that I have turned up, this is so you can extend the handle and shape to suit after it is welded on.

    It is for the gunsmith ,some -one has basically stuffed the bolt body & the handle .
    Not enough metal left to work with apparently.

    For a bolt body/complete bolt the places to try would either be Australia or Canada and at a real pinch the US .

    Your gunsmith obviously cant be arsed finding you a bolt body. Cant have very good contacts out there... If it were me , I'd be ringing several of the recognised gunsmiths around the country to try and locate a bolt , and then seriously consider whether or not I should send them my rifle if the current guy cant find you a part to suit all by himself ....
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    I have a 8x57 mauser taking up room in my safe, not sure if its a 98. action is hardly worn at all and Iv modded safety so it can be used with scope. Its not actually mine but im sure you could get it for a couple hundy.

    If your interested Il track down the owner and tell him Im selling it.(in aus)

    Thanks VC will keep that in mind ,the offer is appreciated.

    The gunsmith is Arthur Cleland ,think he has a pretty good record .
    Certainly has done quality work for me in the past.
    Google Cleland Gunsmiths if you want .
