    Rem bolt problem

    I bought a .223 from on here. I now have it set up nice with timney tigger. It would shoot better with a better pilot but 1 inch is good enough for me. It came with a large bolt handle. Great to work but the safety does not lock the bolt. A few times now working in Christmas tree plantations I have caught said bolt and opened the chamber. Only once lost the round and as I heard it go I recovered it quite easily. Is this a normal problem with a tactical bolt?

    It's fine all 700s do that. Mauser actions as well. Some rifles have a 3 position safety fire, safe, safe with bolt locked.
