    Bolt found

    Hi people, a mate of mine found this rifle bolt at a round about in the Mount. It has a bit of gravel rash on it, it looks like a long action to me reminisent of a sako?

    One good thing.
    Managed to convince my wife that I needed a new rifle while new bolt was getting sorted.
    I dont think she has a clue what guns I have already.
