In reference to the bolt swapping.....did any of you guys think of this scenario ? Lets say that you traded bolts with another guy and got the matching serial numbered bolt for your rifle. O.K. fine, but is that a guarantee that it will headspace properly ? Even worse, the other guy you traded with still has a mis-matched bolt and now it's possible that it has excessive headspace....that's real bad. At least the mis-matched bolt he had before the trade was checked by the CMP for proper headspace. Your thoughts on this ???

I thought of the mis-match up too, and goofing up a rifle that was ok before we tried to fix it. I for one would be HAPPY to wait another month or two on my delivery if it meant getting the numbers right.

Maybe if enough of us ask Orest to do this, he might consider it, CMP being the responsive organization that it is.

Probably the only way to do this would be to ask the cmp store or some individual to receive all bolts that are mismatched and resend everyone the correct bolt. This would have to be done after all rifles are at their new owner. I would think if all rifles were mated back together they should have the original headspace. everyone would have to prepay return shipping to make it go smooth. I still am not convinced it can be done

Someone was trying to organize this about 3 years ago during the last 40X release, maybe on the old Jouster. Don't remember if anything ever came of it.

And I tell ya, someone reputable to do this could even make a buck doing this. for say an extra couple bucks to take this task on. I probably would try it. but like I said ruputable. and I would pay a couple bucks extra to mate my next rifle to its bolt, if it needs it when it arrives.
