    Gunworks Fluted 700 LA Bolt

    I thought I would show you the bolt for my new Edge.

    It was fluted by Gunworks.





    Another couple weighed 385 & 375 grams as standard.
    After fluting this one weighs 335 grams as standard.
    After I put an alloy shroud & light weight pin it weighs 285 grams.
    Robbie hasn't removed any metal from the bolt handle like a Titanium bolt.
    It does look nice & is lighter.
    I very happy with it & he will be doing more for me in the future.

    Very nice KiwiGreg, amazing what a bit of fluting can do for the looks and weight of a rifle.

    With teasers like this Greg poor Roby will be snowed under fluting bolts and barrels
    1000yds is fun, 1500yds is getting interesting, 2000yds is exciting, 2500yds will blow your mind

    Just to clarify, my comment was a dig at remington buyers not gunsmiths
