|Rating:||5 of 5 - Excellent|
|Pros:||Great product, works flawlessly.|
|Q1.||Can I order this product?|
|Yes, you can.|
|Q2.||What is special about the hard-use bolt? Do I need a hard-use bolt?|
|As is included in the product description, the bolt is manufactured with a relief cut in a lug that is prone to breakage during hard use. It also features Ionbond protective coating for protection from heat and friction created during periods of hard use. The bolt is designed for use in extended periods of rapid fire and is not necessary for casual shooting or hunting.|
|Q3.||Is this bolt the same as a 7.62x39 bolt?|
|No, it is not. The two are not interchangeable. They have differing bolt face depths.|
|Q4.||Is this a "type 2" bolt?|
|This product is not what is referred to as a "type 2" bolt. The term "type 2" was created by the firearms community and loosely applies to bolts that correspond to the wildcat cartridge now known as "Grendel II." Because we are the originator and developer of the 6.5 Grendel cartridge, which is now SAAMI-certified, we do not use, sell, stock, or promote the cartridge and corresponding parts of the wildcat "Grendel II" or any other wildcat cartridge. This bolt is a 6.5 Grendel bolt made to fit the barrels of our 6.5 Grendel rifle products and any other rifle products that happen require the same bolt specifications. We are unable to confirm the compatibility of this bolt with any other company's products.|
|Q5.||Is this bolt the same as the .50 Beowulf® bolt?|
|The bolt itself is the same as the .50 Beowulf®, but the extractor is different and so the assemblies are not interchangeable. If you may also use this bolt in a .50 Beowulf® weapon system, you should also purchase a .50 Beowulf® extractor.|
|Q6.||Does this bolt have problems with breakage?|
|It does not, unless it is used improperly.|
