so, iv avoided trash talking your posts,,, why oh why would you trash talk my work??
youv used this whole string to pad your pockets, it would be advisable to keep your comments about my work to yourself,
as 80% of what you have posted about how the bolts were made is complete BS,
as well as the humped up stocks your selling...
remember... when you point fingers at others.. make sure they dont point back

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.

You must be confusing yerself. My jig came out of Fort Benning Small Arms shop. None of my bolts ever see a hammer. They bent in another fixture. The fixture is large and sinks any heat long before it hits cocking ramp. They knew what they were doing when the Gvt made it

Lots of my work, is fellas wanting a correct looking operational new bolt. Not that yours are not funtional. I just dont make things that dont work and look correct. Bolts, stocks, etc, no dremel tools.

Sorry Chuck yer just flat wrong. Never trash yer work, ever. Never seen any.

More bolts ready for builds . . .
