as-new with box....1967 t-bolt



Log in to see fewer ads
purchased a really sweet looking t-bolt last sunday. it sure shoots good! and the trigger breaks like a piece of glass (i did not expect a terrific trigger!)...could not be happier. i have wanted one for years.
a grade 2, it has the factory peep...and some nice walnut to boot.
it shows no signs of salt so perhaps i got lucky?!

bob

a few pics...

+1! I have itís left handed cousin. Also a 1967 era with original peep and documents but no box. Yours has nicer wood.

Very happy with mine. How well did yours shoot the Geco Bolt .22s I see in your pic? I shot mine with SK+ at metallic targets. Havenít shot it from the bench yet. But it shoots well for a light sporter even off hand.

Take the action out of the stock, check where action touches stock you may see rusting at that point on barrel and where and if barrel touches the sides of the stock. I have a 1968 T2. It shows no signs of salt wood until you take the action out of the stock. The butt plate screws come out normally, if frozen and can not back them out with a screw driver another sign of a salt wood stock. Still the rifle is a great shooter for a sporter.

Bob:

Took me a while to find a lefty, but they are out there. Just watch gunbroker.

As to which T2s have saltwood, opinions vary. Check earlier posts on Belgium T bolts. Lots of info there. Bottom line, you need to inspect each rifle for tell tale signs of rusting and price your offer accordingly.

Bob:

Did you find any rust? Also check to see if your stock has been sealed in the barrel channel and other inletting. Mine has. Professionally from the looks of it. I suspect it helped mitigate rusting. But who knows. Opinions very widely on sealing salt wood stocks too. Russ

That is a fine looking rifle.

I hope there is no salt wood because that is a beautiful stock.

Congrats

I'm happy for you. I have a '67 I bought new at the base exchange in Bremerton in '67 just before my discharge. Have everything except the box. The origional reciept is for $64 and $2.95 for extra magazine. Shoots great, no salt. My stock interior is fully sealed from the factory. Use various scopes but put the irons back on cause they are more fun. CCI sv shoots up a storm. With the scopes it shoots quarter sized groups off the bench at 50yds. I use the single shot adaptor mostly because I have other semi-autos to use also. On ebay you can find t-bolt brochures from that time period. They are a nice addition. Enjoy and treasure.

well, bummer. the rifle has a salt stock.

i am not sure how bad it is--it does not look too bad. one butt screw was removed easily and was rusty. the other is kinda stuck where it's at.

the action is now removed from the stock and it looks like corrosion but fortunatly it is not on the pretty parts. so i am thinking i may seal this stock and shoot it.

the 'bath' has been taken on this gun so i think i will try to utilze the existing stock and make her a snazzy shooter. the stock sealant only has to last fifteen or twenty years - i'm old ;-)
(the stock is what drew me to the rifle in the first place).

it sure it pretty.

photos coming.

don't you know i will check next time!

would a current production tbolt stock work?

thank you

bob

Bob,

I also have a 67 T-2 that has a salt wood stock. I've owned it for more than 20 years and have carried it on hundreds of walks. Every year I remove the action from the stock and coat the inside of the stock with a bit of Crisco grease. During this time, the salt has had no additional impact on the metal. My stock is as pretty as yours and an annual inspection allows me to keep and enjoy it.

Ken

Salt wood isn't the end of the World, with precautions you can hold it at bay. I have one and it shoots so well I can over look the little imperfections that mostly don't show.
