tactical bolt bodies are here!! see below...brand new!
Installing an optic (scope) on your Mosin-Nagant requires the use of a "bent bolt" so that the bolt handle will have adequate clearance. Our bent bolts are "low profile"- meaning they will work with all scope mounts- and are particularly suited for mounts utilizing modern scopes mounted low to the bore as they provide maximum clearance. The original Russian style "sniper" bent bolt designed for use with their side-mount scopes will not provide the necessary clearance to work with mounts of this type. As with any modern rifle, low-profile bolts such as ours will require you to do a small amount of inletting in the side of your stock to provide clearance for the bolt handle.
"Traditional" Low-Profile Bent Bolt:
Original straight handle and bolt knob cut off, new Grade 8, alloy steel bolt handle MIG welded to the bolt body, and the original ball handle replaced. The assembly is blued after grinding and polishing.
A "traditional" looking bent bolt, for those looking for an alternative to a shiny, new CNC machined handle. Should go without saying- but I'll say it anyway in the interest of full disclosure...these bolt bodies are original, and have probably seen combat use. Pictures are representative of the bolt you will receive, newly blued and coated with protectant (click on pics to zoom for more detail)
These bolt bodies are getting much harder (and more expensive) to find, now you can keep your original matched-number bolt body in it's original condition, and swap out this bolt body onto the guts of your bolt. Doesn't affect headspace on this style bolt, which headspaces off the bolthead.
