Default Remington 512 worn out

My first rifle :sob: is finally worn out after 69 years of hard use it was my dads trapping rifle then he passed it down to me and the bolt sear that stops it from coming out is almost non-existent

Numrich lists bolts for $98 but out of stock at the moment.

I think you could find one at a decent gunshow or on Gunbroker.
Good hunting.

I've looked around quite a bit and the best deal I found was a bolt on gunbroker for $150 that seemed a little overpriced to me what do you think?

I'm thinking $150 ought to get a complete *gunsmith special* rifle with a decent bolt, but maybe I'm dreaming.

It seems a little steep but if you think of the enjoyment and sustenance that rifle has given your family and divide that $150 by years of service = $2.17 per year or 18 cents a month...pretty good deal really.

I've been in your shoes and sometimes we bite the bullet.

No harm in watching Gunbroker some more unless your fed up.

Wow, that sweet old rifle has seen some hard use. My first rifle that my Dad gave me when I was 10 y.o. was his old Rem. 512 rifle that was manufactured in Jan. 1942. It's has been shot a lot, but doesn't have the wear yours shows.

Bolts are hard to find and can be very pricey. Watch Gunbroker and E-bay for one and do the pawn shop tour in your area to see if anyone has an old 512 rifle laying around. I'm pretty sure that a model 510, 511 & 513 bolt will also work in your 512 as they all were the same.

Here's mine:

It would be easier(and maybe cheaper) to buy a complete rifle. I think the bolts might be all the same for all the 510 series ( 510,511,512).

Thanks sagenodland, it's hard to believe it's almost 70 years old now. The thing still shoots nice tight nickle sized groups with just Fed. 550 bulk box ammo. IMO, these were some of the finest .22's Remington ever made. I also have a family owned 1937 Remington 341 "Sportsmaster" that came before the model 512 "Sportmaster" It is also still a great shooter although not in as good of condition as the old 512.

My 552 Semi Auto I got when I got out of 6th grade finally gave up the ghost, that was 1952. Also bolt problems, it broke in two at the bolt hole.
