XP bolt Login/Join 



posted
I'm going to rebarrel my XP to 221 FB. The bolt I have is for 7 BR, so I suspect that will go to ****. (the 7 BR barrel is not in good shape and I don't want to get another set of reloading dies etc--I have the 221 FB set already)

Anyway, I'm looking at getting a bolt from Pacific Tool & Gauge. I want to make sure I get the right one. From their website, it looks like I’d want has these dimensions:

Firing Pin Tip Diameter = Standard Diameter (0.075”)
Bolt Face .223 (0.380”)
Remington Extractor Cut (there are other options)

I’d be grateful if someone could please confirm that this is what I want, and if there are other options, especially better ones, I’d like to hear about them.

Thanks!

Correct,

Need the .223 bolt, standard firing pin and standard bolt diameter

Extractor, go with a Sako style (just my opinion)

I prefer the m16 style extractor. Just my preference, and another option. I would also bush the bolt face as Chris suggested.

Why not trade your bolt for the correct one? If your ordering a bolt get the small firing pin hole. You'll need the small firing pin but you'll get better ignition. I prefer rem extractors for 223 size cases.

I think I might know someone that has two or three XP Bolts with .223 bolt faces. I think they would be willing to trade one if your bolt is in good shap

The bolt from PTG will need to be fit by a smith. I bought one myself and it is not a drop in exchange fit. I dont know if they make a bolt from a sample ( like the one you already have. They also would not take the bolt back for refund. You should be aware and call them about your idea of exchanging bolts. I eventually sold my bolt at a big loss. Bruce

Rich,

My email is dpchrisman@windstream.net I only have access to a computer about every other day So it may take me a few days to respond to your emails. If you could send me a pic of your bolt and I will send pics of the bolts I have. If you want to you could include your phone number in the email and I could call.

Dave

With the help of a kind lister (who swapped bolts) and my gunsmith, the 221 franken pistol is now together. It has a barrel, stock, receiver, and bolt from different guns, and shoots well.

If you do get a bolt from PTG you can specify the bolt diameter which will allow you to get a better fit in the rear and prevent the bolt from rocking which is a feature on custom bolts. You will have to measure your current bolt diameter and see how much it moves in the receiver and add to the diameter when you order.
