Seeing "MIL-SPEC" as just the starting point, we set out to ensure the best options are available for our demanding customers. Improvements include using 9310 tool steel for the bolt, nitriding the assembly to increase surface hardness, decrease resistance, and have superior corrosion resistance compared to typical phosphated bolts. All bolts are fully MPI tested to ensure the material is sound and without defects. Bolt lugs are chamfered 45 degrees to ensure reliable action for even the highest pressure hand loads and fast lightweight actions. Extractors are S7 Tool Steel. From there, the extractor is sprung using the spring, o-ring, and silicone insert.

  • 9310 Tool Steel Construction
  • Full MIL-SPEC Heat Treatment
  • Shot Peened to MIL-SPEC
  • Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)
  • Back of Lugs Chamfered for Reliability
  • Spring, Insert, & "Crane" O-Ring Installed

    great bolt

    i got this bolt along with a barrel headspaced to this bolt. no issues at all with headspacing. extractor was stiff at first chewing up brass a little but this went away after first deep cleaning. 4 stars only because finish is wearing off already after only 500 rounds. other than that awesome product

    So Far So Good

    Machining looks top notch, only fired a few mags so far, mainly to make sure it worked. So far it works just as good as any other bolt. Great value for the price
