Model 74 Question

Is there a way of manually keeping the bolt closed on the Model 74 so that the semi auto action does not operate, when the rifle fires?

 

Some semi autos have this feature, which can be useful if a silencer is fitted, as there is slightly less noise when the bolt remains closed. I have found this personally with a Voere .22 semi auto where the bolt knob could be pushed in and locked the breech. There was a small but noticeable difference in the sound when shooting with a moderator or silence fitted.

Good question. With standard velocity shorts I feel like the action of a 74 is nearly as loud as the report.

Hi Alan,

No, not without modifying the receiver with the addition of a bolt locking pin.

Best Regards,
