    PTG Bolt Body Savage Spiral Fluted...

    http://www.midwayusa.com/find?userSe...t+Body+Savage+
    Technical Information
    Material: Heat treated chrome moly steel
    Finish: In the White
    Features: Replacement bolt body for Savage short action
    Gunsmithing Required: Yes
    Notes:
    1-piece bolt body
    Bolt handle not included
    Bolt body only, does not include bolt head or retaining pin
    Larger diameter bolt body offers an excellent fit in the action normally eliminating action boring and bolt sleeving for a no-play fit



    got 1 for my 260, had it Nitrided with some barrels i did, http://savageshooters.com/SavageForu...41326.120.html

    you notice the less play and smother action with it, the Nitride helps more with that, due to the hardness and lubricity.

    Nitriding has lubricity? Didyou try the bolt bfore nitriding to make a comparison? Who did the work?

    Thanks for the info

    Have you noticed any reduction in effort when opening the bolt with the new bolt body and the nitriding?

    I may be wrong, but I believe the nitriding turns it that color

    Look for a heat treating company close to you. You want it hung verticaly during the process.

    Good info. I have a PTG bolt arriving in a few days and wanted it coated since it comes in the white.

    You do realize that the comparison is for lubricated and non lubricated not before and after nitrided. I do agree that harder parts have less tendancy to be misformed theerfore allowing a smoother fit as does microfinishing.

    did you have to do anything to the bolt body other than Nitriding? or is it as simple as taking apart the old bolt and putting it together again with the new bolt body?
