    WTB: Bolt for 98 mauser 8mm

    Had my project rifle in the gun smith in Hamilton to get the bolt handle modified .18 months on finally got it back(after requesting it to be sent back 3 or 4 times) job not done ,saying the bolt is stuffed & needs replacing.The replacement bolt I got was too long apparently & wrong model.
    So now I need a bolt and or a competent gunsmith to sort this out ,any help would be appreciated hugely .

    Have complete 8mm mauser if your interested.
    Action and bolt appear to have done very very little work.
    Barrel is rooted.
    I have modified the safety so can get the first position with a scope on.

    Bits found and reassembled.
    Near as i can measure with a tape (best i can do at home verniers to small) from bolt face to rear flat face of cocking indicator not including small bulge in the middle it is

    193mm cocked
    184mm decocked.

    Bolt handle has been ground also(not me) for scope clearance

    Rear ring of action has been ground?sanded? Not by me, can see some original machine marks and blue so not sure how much if any has come off as Im not a mauser man.
