bolt truing

It's similar to blueprinting a auto engine....the headspace is adjusted to min/match while making sure the front of the bolt is square with the squared barrel....the back of the bolt is rounded and polished to insure a straight movement of the hammer being recockedand not pushed to one side and the rounding-polish makes the bolt slightly lighter and smoother in the travel...the flats on the bolt side are checked for smoothness and straightness to ride the inner action retainer rails and again smooth travel of the bolt...for subsonic and light shells the bolt can have holes/spaces machined to lighten the bolt and make it fuction with the less powerful ammo..NOT recc. for standard normal shooting..imo.....the firing pin raceway is checked for burrs and straightness.......often the visible part of the bolt is jewelled for retaining oil and looks.......NOT all bolts need all this but it can't hurt anything but the pocketbook and does help the bolts at the far edges of factory specs........some of the ads and supporters of this site do this work and have a good reputation and might have some other "tricks" they add to the detailing.....HTH..good luck and good shooting!!!
