Chinese bolts have had softness problems. Rather than taking any chances I had a brand new TRW bolt put in. This requires some modification to the receiver.

I hear ya.

Not all Chinese bolts are soft. However, just to be on the safe side, it is reccomended that you keep an eye on the headspace in order to ensure that it doesn't wear excessively.

What? Sir, the Canadian dollar is in fact on par with the USD. I am thoroughly confused.

Even though it's on par, it would still be an extremely great price at $399.

Good lookin stick!

You might want to check out Entry to Sadlak.com for a mount. Theirs are high quality and for a fair price. They make them in house unlike some of the others out there.
