Has anyone installed a ATI bolt on a Mosin Nagant ?

  1. Is it hard ? does it work good ?

    I've been told about a guy who will make a nice looking one for $35 on auction arms, but since I have the ATI one coming with the scope mount I'd like to try it first. It would be no big deal if I screwed it up because he doesn't need my bolt body to do one for me, he will even stamp my SN # on it if I want him too.

    Here's his link

  2. Wow, not bad at all. Don't have one, but it is very nice.

    I've fired my buddies with it and it worked flawlessly, its just a standard mosin bolt with a bent handle....
     
  4. hitmanharleyk,

    Check out the Mosin Nagant section on http://surplusrifle.com they have about all the info one could ask for on this rifle.

    Here is a direct link to the MN bolt disassembly & reassembly....

    I had one M91/30 that had a sporter bolt on it, functioned fine but I prefer the military straight bolt because I never scoped any of my Mosins. Not sure if the bolt on that rifle was from ATI or another source because it was like that when I purchased the rifle.

    Good luck with your project gun.

  5. The ATI Bolt handle is a drill and tap project.

    You have to cut the current handle off leaving a 3/16" stub, you then slid the new one over the stub and drill, tap a hole for a screw to attach it.

    I'm going to do it and see how it works, if I don't like it I can always get one from the above guy for $35.
