But being all "original" is not required by the rules. Vis a vis the aftermarket barrels, stocks, chinese scopes and mounts and so on.
Never heard of anyone drilling and tapping a bolt but I learn something new every day.

Abundance of Remington bolts available? Possibly a metallurgical reason? Maybe Mr. Micheals can answer the reasoning for us.

I know that the bolts are interchangeable, but maybe the contour on the handles are different, and the cmp shop is set to machine one kind.

Anyway, thanks for the assistance. The cmp bolt looks good enough for me, but thanks to Rootsy, I got one even cheaper, even though it doesn't look as good at the cmp. I just want it to clear the scope. If I wanted it to look real, I would save up for a real one!

M1key111 was that bolt made by the custom shop from a standard 03-a3 bolt? Looks really good

Bob,

Yes it was, the best deal around for $100 bolt for an 03-A3 clone!

FYI;
original A4 bolts were made by Remington from scratch, with a special jig.
they never modified standard A3 bolts by heating them, and pounding them down in a fixture with a hammer,
across machine also made some post war replacement bolts in the same was as Remington,
no bolt were ever made by any Ord, depot or military Armorers, they didn't have to make them, they just put in a request for a replacement bolt.
as far as heat from welding..
wouldn't you think, heating the bolt handle up with a torch so that it can be bent and hammered into place the ground on with a grinder would do more damage then,..15 seconds of welding with a heat sink stuck in the rear of the bolt?
also the only area that would be a safety area would be the bolt head and face, cutting off a handle , shaping it and then welding it back on is how the 3 leading gunsmith schools teach.
