Long shot I know but here we go some one will have one I hope.

I am after a bolt for a rem 700 17 centre fire.

Thanks Pete.

AFAIK the bolt is legally regarded as a pressure bearing part of a rifle and therefore, if someone has one, it would have to be transferred from their FAC to yours.

I think the the bolt handles on the Remington 700 are brazed on. Shouldn't be that hard for a gun smith to braze it back on and much cheaper than a new bolt.

You are right I have just had a good look at it. And it has been brazed on.
I have a mate I think he can do it for me, If knot I will have to take to the gun shop.
Thanks for your help. Pete.

I'm thinking few gunshops would be equipped nor have much experience with brazing Pete.
