wait for these to go on sale w/accompanying charging handle/spring:

https://www.jwhcustom.com/product-ca...ern-cnc-bolts/

- inexpensive
- complete
- drop-in
- cheap spare or full-time
- can get a custom version (initials, etc.)
- work very well

just my $0.02

Also have a JWH Custom bolt that's been flawless so far.

I'm not a 10/22 guy but that CST system looks like some high quality stuff.

I've got bolts from Ruger (stock and modded), TI, Volquartsen, KIDD, and JWH.. in my opinion I'd say just get whatever you like the looks/price of because realistically it's hard to see an accuracy difference between stock and aftermarket

I'm usually building from scratch so I don't really have "stock" parts to play with, so I picked up a bunch of the old style JWH Competitor bolts when JWH was having a black friday sale a couple of years ago, and couldn't be happier with them for the $$ spent (on sale they were being sold for less than what the typical oem Ruger bolts sell for)

Another vote here for the JWH when it can be scored on sale. It has all the mods done to it that I would have wanted to do to my oem, or spend more on somebody elses.
At reg price it is Ok, on sale it is a bargain.

CST would be my choice.
The one in my new Joe Chacon build is beautiful.
It comes with a titanium extractor and firing pin.
Joe seems to have switched from JWH to CST for his builds.

never had an issue with the JWH bolts, so I haven't had to sample their CS yet, but I was able to buy 3 of the JWH bolts for less than what the black KIDD costs

Kidd all day and everyday.
Sure there are other bolts makers out there, and they may be good.
But why not go ahead and get a Kidd bolt and charge handle and know you got the best and not second guess it.

this was a couple years ago when I was looking for parts to do a bunch of builds for the family...the old Competitor bolts were being blown out for something like $28 apiece, so I bought 6 of 'em

it was about the same time CWP was blowing out their inventory of Ruger factory blem stocks for $20 each.. where I got 4 Compacts, a couple of Targets, and a few Carbine stocks cheap

strictly a case of being in the right place at the right time...and actually having a need for the parts

I'd go with a Kidd just because I haven't had very good luck with JWH bolts. I know lots of members here use them alot and haven't had any issues. But I know there are others who have. An OEM bolt would be fine too.

Kidd here too. I too have had some issues with the JWH bolts (not critical, but issues) and never with Kidd products.
