Q: This bolt assy. for 7.62x39 with enhanced firing pin; is the bolt made for the 7.62 or is it machined from a 5.56 bolt? I am willing to pay the extra $ for a superior product that was manufactured from the start for it's intended purpose.
A: The 7.62x39 bolt assembly is machined from start of manufacturing to its completion as a dedicated 7.62x39 bolt assembly. This goes for the extractor as well...machined from start as a 7.62x39 extractor.
Q: Will this work with a 6.5 grendel type 1 barrel?
A: I believe they sell Grendel specific bolts. Plus, the bolt face depth might be different. Don’t quote me, but I think Grendel might be a .135” face depth; where as MilSpec is a .125” face depth.
A: If your 6.5 Grendel barrel is chambered for a "type 1" bolt your build does require a 7.62x39 bolt assembly which has a .125" bolt face. We see this on occasion.
Q: Are the bolt’s walls reinforced / thicker to prevent cracking or the lugs breaking? Also, can this bolt kit handle surplus or any other factory ammo? Thank you!
A: Our bolts are not thicker or reinforced.
