    Wanted. Remington short action Bolt .222

    As stated above.
    I have had my Remy .222 re barrelled but when it went for proof it failed.
    The bolt face cracked so need another.
    Anybody got an old Remy .223 or .222 they don't use, if the price is right I'd be interested.
    Thanks.
    Eddy McC.

    There's a .222 barrelled action on guntrader for 195. Hope that helps. I'd buy the rest of the action and your failed bolt if you went for that option - looking for one to measure up.

    Cheers,

    Rory

    I have had an offer of a Remy .223 less than 10 years old for not much more than that so am looking for something a wee bit cheaper.
    Fingers crossed and keep on hoping

    How old is it Eddy? Has it seen much use?
    I'd be contacting Remington and asking them if they'd care to sort it out. They've had a lot of bad press recently with product recall over triggers and may well sort you out with a replacement if you make the right noises!

    It was a Christmas present in 2000 and has just had the barrel replaced so, according to Riflecraft, the replacement barrel may/would/could affect the warranty !!
    So not looking good in that respect I'm afraid.
    Had the barrel not been replaced it may well have been sorted under guarantee but then it would not have needed to go for proof either.

    Riflecraft had some spares from an order a few months ago but I can't remember what size bolt face they where.

    Why not use this opportunity as a means to have a blue printed action with an upgrade to a PTG bolt?

    I remember your post about wanting it re-barrelled and your disbelief at the cost of a quality re-barrelling job. Well, buy cheap, buy twice.

    I think the issue is with the action, not the barrel being replaced by which ever Smith did the job.
    Either way, there would have been a possibility that had he continued using the original rifle as it was , the bolt could still have cracked, unaware to the user. The day it breaks when out lamping etc is never good.

    As a possibility, the proof load MAY have been excessive the second time round since it passed proof originally ( the action, not barrel)

    Interesting comment, so are you saying the bolt failure was down too poor workmanship???
