    T1x Action Smooth

    Hey Guys, First off I am new to the site, and fairly new to guns in general, so please forgive my lack of terminology. I recently purchased a T1x after already owning a t3. The action on the t3 is very smooth, the bolt will slide back with the slightest tilt of the gun. Purchasing the T1x I am a...

    Hello fellow bolt action people. I have gotten my first long range bolt action rifle. It is the New version AR-31 from Armalite. I want to put a bipod on it, and I am having a bitch of a time. I cannot for the life of me figure out what screws mate up to this. Not to mention they seem HUGE...

    6x45 or 6.5 Creedmoor

    I'm interested in purchasing my first bolt action rifle. I have it narrowed down to the factory rifle (Savage B10 Stealth Left Hand). I am debating between choosing my first chambering: 6x45 rebarrel or 6.5 Creedmoor. I could get the .223 and rebarrel with a Shilen pre-fit chambered for 6x45 or...

    6.5mm Creedmoor vs 6.5mmx47 vs .260 Rem

    I am planning on shooting 1000 yard competitions in the future so this will be my first long range rifle. I reload all my own rounds so that will not be issue. I can't decide to go with the 6.5mm Creed or the 6.5x47mm Lapua or .260 Rem. Please make this decision easier. I am leaning toward the...

    A few things I learned while working on my Savage bolt

    I have been doing a lot of dry fire on my rifle and I noticed that the extractor wasn't working well on the "A-zoom" .308 Win snap caps. I haven't had a chance to take it to the range yet so testing it with live ammo hasn't been an option. I did some research and found that a lot of people...

    Thompson Center Dimension

    Got a new Dimension in 7mm08, I know its not a long range caliber or sniper rifle by any means, but I need some advice. When I first got it the bolt was incredibly stiff, not the action but just cocking it. Once you got it cocked it was nice and smooth but it just about took two guys and a mule...

    Gunsmithing Remington Bolt question.

    I've got a .223 action just sitting around. I'm going to put a 300wsm barrel on it. Now, about the bolt. Can it be turned to accommodate the larger case? Will I need a new extractor or a new bolt? Thanks.

    260 Remington in Bolt guns.

    Well I finally pulled the trigger and bought a Sako model 85 in 260 Remington. Yeah, I know, it's not ubber tacticool, but it's a starting point. I got a good deal on it and it has a hair under 23" of barrel in 1/8 twist. I found a couple boxes of ammo online and got the glass close...

    Why a removed bolt?

    Hey all, just a practical question- I've seen in a number of shots of people's cases that they remove the bolt when the gun is in storage or closed up. Why? Thanks, BB

    Gunsmithing M700 squirming bolt

    When I dryfire my 700 on an empty chamber, the bolt moves forward about 0.020". It seems like the sear and firing pin mechanism pull the bolt rearward. The large 0.020 (measured with feeler gauges) concerns me. When I put a dummy round in the chamber and dryfire, the bolt twists slightly...

    Gunsmithing Bolt Face

    Got a rookie question for you all. I was looking at new 700 actions on Gunbroker and found one that did not have a caliber listing. All it said was that it had a standard bolt face. Is there a standard that a lot of them come in (head size) or am I looking too deap into that?

    Gunsmithing Cleaning requirements for bolt guns vs ARs

    Quite possibly a dumb question and I know this will solicit a lot of opinions. I'm new to the bolt-gun craze and just got a Savage 10FCP in .308. I've run a Otis nylon rod with brass brush, Hoppes no. 9 and patches and left it dry with the bolt removed. I'm used to cleaning ARs so I don't...
