i have wanted to start a thread about bolt action rifles for while. i want a thread that we can discuss bolt actions, with photos of your favorites, a discussion with tips and pointers on how to maintain or modify them. tip and tricks on repairing them and where to find parts and accessories for them. we can discuss what are some the best features of a particular brand, but no brand bashing. i want this thread to focus on commercially made rifles, sporterized military rifles, target and hunting rifles, and of course custom built bolt actions either you or a gunsmith has built. i shoot and own more bolt action rifles than any other type. i enjoy their inherent accuracy, their simplicity and their timeless design. hopefully this thread will also help give some much needed information to those who are new to firearms, or those who are new to rifles and want some tips and recommendation on bolt actions in general. so lets see how this goes!
