    Bolt Faces

    Right we all know a bolt face can be 'opened' easy as but why dont you see many people 'close' them?

    I have a 7mm saum rem700 titanium action that i was given but dont want that bolt face as, why cant i sleeve it an fit sako extractor rather that buy new bolt body? be no weeker that what it was when was open on the saum be smaller round anyway

    Anyone herd of anyone doing it?

    Feed rails can be changed to suit new rounds so thats no biggie either

    Cheers Abe

    No reason why you cant.
    Depending on how much smaller you go the sleeve might not be too thick, but if its a press fit, then there should be no issues.
    Pretty simple engineering job really.

    Its not big at all but wondering why you never hear it been done?

    Going from the saum to 243 case

    Build up(weld it) or sleeve it? pros and cons for both I guess.

    Tui-man, if you specifically want to use a Titanium action then use one of these

    Titanium Actions from X-Treme Shooting within AccurateShooter.com

    Or if you want to modify the stainless bolt that comes in you Rem Ti action then most gunsmiths can do that.

    Give Scott a call at SSRNZ.co.nz
