    Gmk

    Does anybody have any contacts in gmk?
    ive been waiting, that is my firearms shop has been waiting, for 9 weeks now for parts for a tikka bolt.
    I could understand perhaps a 2-3 week wait but 9 weeks!

    In the past I've just rung them up direct. The lady that answers the 'phone is very knowledgeable about whom you call should be then routed to. Hope it helps. It may be I suspect that the useless Proof House has an "input" on this and it may be the bolt is "awaiting some otherwise unemployable Brummie to get off their idle arse" or somesuch.

    It's just the extraction claw, pin and spring that I need so hopefully nothing needing the proof house input.

    Some years ago I was quoted 12 weeks by GMK for a stock screw/bolt for a Sako , I F Thomson made and fitted one
    while they had the rifle the floated the barrel and glass bedded the action, they also touched up the crown, total time 5 days.

    I found GMK totally useless and un helpful when I contacted them about a beretta shotgun needless to say I'll never purchase anything supplied via GMK again.

    They are crap-I was quoted a 5 month wait and 500 for a 695 bolt (don't ask ) many years ago.

    Mainly because Tikka will not supply ( or should not ) without the rifle being returned to check correct head spacing, this is a policy worldwide, to replace a bolt usually costs half the price of a new rifle ( I recently did a quote for a client) and in the UK I bet they would want to proof it as well, and yes GMK are a shower of sxxt, next to useless on warranty claims.

    I had an issue with a sako quad 22 LR.

    I rang the Gmk office the lady receptionist put me through to Paul in the workshop and it was sorted straightaway

    give Paul a ring, if nothing else, he tells it as it is,

    good luck

    Surprisingly I did a insurance quote today for a replacement T3 bolt, $800. We are selling rifles for $1299.00, this includes scope ( very cheap ) bi pod and rifle slip. Delivery time for the bolt minimum of 3 months.
    The rifle will then need checking for head space , total bill will be around $1000 , DON,T LOSE YOUR BOLT
