Bolt swap?

Postby smithd1 » 19 Dec 2017 10

I have an old pre safety 357 and a new 357.

My old rifle is 20" and the new 16"

Can I swap the bolt to have my dream come true 16" no safety?

Not without headspace verification, I'd say.

headspace and function both I would debate if they'd be in check.

I would not ASSume so. There's a lot of other differences....like the the original has no plastic.

I've stripped all five of my Braztech rifles down several times to their smallest parts, and I'm certain that they only have "one" plastic piece, that being the magazine follower. Your statement "a lot of other differences" make it sound like there's more and there is not.

The one thing your "original" rifle, the A. Rossi manufactured rifles, has is no spare parts. None. That is a real negative of ownership for me.
