Here's the latest. first, sorry about the pics coming out so oversize (least they are on my computer) I resized them but they don't seem to want to play nice.

A L/H Remmy 700 with a PTG bolt. Just finished TIG'n the handle (back side) and sweatin some silver up front. (gotta do that in that order otherwise you have a big MESS)

Primary extraction is good, Weld has been turned/filed down to where it almost looks like one piece on the backside. Still have some file work to do on the handle to get it all nice n perty. Yes, sometimes even I have to use a file! (kinda like it-almost smile ) Ordered this one with an M-16 extractor because I loath Sako's in Remingtons. Going to be doing some bling on the bolt as well. Helical flutes or some fancy engraving? Still debating. I'm thinking some tribal flames done radially would be a cool alternative. Have to see. This particular customer gives me a long leash to play on so we'll see what happens.

Last, I ordered the bolt with the smallest hole David will put in it. This way I could fit the striker myself. .076" ended up working really well for the factory pin. Would rather of used one of my set ups, but no biggy.

OLD BOLT pics:

This bugger has seen a hard life. Owner took it to "someone" who attempted to flute and skeletonize the bolt. Experience is never cheap and unfortunately there wasn't much I could do with it.



Here's the new bolt installed. TIG welded/silver soldered handle and my proprietary fire control installed.





More to come. . .

Here's the new bolt handle work being done. This is a knob I make in house. Instead of epoxy I thread it on and then silver solder it to help transition to the handle portion a little better. Also put some engraving on the bottom just for fun.

Now were onto the stock work.

Same as always, I begin with a 3D CAD surface model of the customer's action and use it to drive the primary inlet in the stock. This stock had been inletted for another action at one time. I filled her back up and started over. (I always begin jobs with "virgin" stocks as it gives me total control of the inletting.

From there its onto setup in the CNC machine in my special fixtures that I made.

Then it's "cycle smash" and let her rip. When I'm done I have an exact copy of the action enlarged in every direction to allow for the bedding to have a uniform thickness at all contact points. This way I get a nice even film thickness so that shrinkage is uniform at ever contact point.





Now we check the fit then pull it and get on with the bedding!

Here's the prep work and after I got her sitting in the goop.

We'll pop her out late tomorrow sometime.

Nice work, but the bolt is on the wrong side!!!

So is this rifle going to be a repeater or single shot? Plus I take it after the bedding has cured you'll go back in there and mill it out for the trigger, and magzine well if there is going to be one? Do you even own or use a lathe I've never seen pictures of you using one?
