I am looking for anyone that owns an early production Model 43 (serial range 1 – 6000), and can provide me with details on the configuration of the bolt (to include pictures).

Thanks,

Bert

Bert-

I have S/N 5104, a standard grade 218 Bee.  Do you just need a photo of the bolt in the rifle (straight versus curved bolt handle), or do you need specific views of the bolt removed from the rifle?

Lou,

I would like to see pictures of the bolt removed from the action, and showing the top, bottom, bolt face, rear, etc.  Frankly, I would like to see it fully disassembled, but I realize that would be asking too much of you (or anyone else).  Any clear pictures you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bert-

I’ll get the pictures taken in the next little while.  Need a day-off and they don’t come around too often…

It is a straight bolt handle and I’ll send the pics to your e-mail when I’ve got them.

Cheers,

Lou
