Thread: Info on fluted sako bolt ??

    Info on fluted sako bolt ??

    Hi, is there any members that know of any one that does fluting on the sako bolts, I have seen many pictures of them done, but when I have contacted a few dealers they say they can't be done. yet I have seen plenty of pics of them done, there is a dealer in new Zealand but too fair to send my bolt, thanks

    Dave at valkyrie rifles did my rem 700 bolt fluting and tactical bolt handle - bloody good job he did too!!

    Info here:

    Looks like it does depend on which sako bolt type it is though!

    purely aesthetics on a factory bolt looks good!

    Yep looks good!
    Its the same fluting that he uses on his custom actions.
    Better grip with the bolt handle too

    I have a Tikka 590 and remember John Carr (Doncaster) telling me that he could flute the bolt on that but not on Sako's bolt. I think it is something to do with the extractor.

    If at first you don't succeed, reload

    I think Steve kershaw quoted me 120 to flute the bolt on my sako 75 so may be worth giving him a call.
