    Yeah Gunworks is the only way to go, the last one I had done was an awesome job on a T3 bolt ( a 180 degree spiral the length of the bolt ) they have a guy that only does fluting & their price, service & turn quick around is great

    I got my Model 7 bolt fluted, but saved a lot more weight going to a lightweight firing pin and shroud.

    You would have saved more weight by leaving one round out of the magazine.
