  2. Hi Guys! I am currently doing some work on the forum software and I will implement a few changes. You can no longer post in the News, FAQ, Guidelines and Advice sections, they are reserved for posts and messages from the staff. You will not be able to post replies in the For Trade section either since follow up discussions not related to the sale is better posted in the General section or any of the model specific forums. Questions about items in the For Trade section must be done by Conversation (PM). I also urge you all to set a price to each item you list and please do not stick your posts. There will also be some work done to the way the forum looks. We have many sub-forums and I will try to get a more sleek and maneuverable design. Let me know if you encounter any problems! You can delete this message after you´ve read it, click the cross in the upper right corner in the box. All the best! Jim L61R

    Even if you found a bolt and that won't be easy, you would have to check the head space and there a good chance the head space would not be correct. Then you have to get a gunsmith involved. Unless you can get the rifle for next to nothing I would keep looking, Grizz.

    pahoghunter,it is not an inpossible item to find but perhaps a very difficult one. I have seen others looking an am not sure if they found what they were looking for.Perhaps someone will chime in soon and give more details on this subject.Who knows you may get lucky.If you did find one for the rifle you of course should have the head spacing checked before firing the gun.Could be a safety issue.You are at the right place to get direction on this.Perhaps you should post in the wanted section and see what responses you get. Good luck Jim

    Thank you for the information, I think I will pass unless of course it goes for a really low price which I don't think will happen, people do really crazy things at auctons. I may look at the Sako A-7, I'm still active in varmint hunting and for some unknown reason I like synthetic stocks.
