Lapping tools exert rearward pressure on the bolt face to simulate round in battery conditions.

You don't want to lap in a bolt without this. Otherwise you could be doing it for nothing. I just went ahead and bought the tool. I check with fine grit lapping compound to examine park removal. Guesstimate lug contact area and if good move on.

Good point. I use a case that I cut a piece out of the middle and slid a spring into it. Does the job, cost nothing.

I'm here now, M14 still has his posts up chastising Roadkingtrax, I believe the adjectives used are a bit belittling, of course, if you can't see that... Here you are

By M14 "Which one is more important, safety or accuracy ?.....jeez, I'm done trying to relate to you. That has got to be the dumbest question ever."

I would say that is the most pompous statement ever and it comes off as plain egotistic.

Actually in all fairness, it is a very pertinent question and the heart of this discussion.

I may be a little too stubborn to offend.

I'm still waiting for an answer from the OP, he took a dismissive and belittling approach in an attempt to bully his position and reasoning. Sadly that does nothing to support the practice of bolt lapping. Same goes for the self proclaimed experience in all things related to the M1 and M1A.

I do hope this was a bad attempt at a joke.

When there is only one side contacting, the bolt will not settle in the same place every time, thus affecting accuracy.

Comments and questions welcomed.


Clarification please. OP stated "safety lug is the one on the left rear of the bolt".....Typo?
