Q: Will this bolt work on BCA side charging BCG

Asked by: Armando - 12/3/2020
A: It will work in any BCG that is mil-spec. So if BCA side charging BCG is per mil-spec dimensions and doesn't use a proprietary bolt assembly then you can use this bolt assembly in their BCG.

Q: Will this bolt work in the PSA KS-47 BCG? Looking for a spare bolt for my KS but am not sure if PSA specs for the 7.62x39 bolt are the same... gracias

Asked by: JS - 9/15/2020
A: No this AR 7.62x39 bolt assembly is not compatible with a KS47. The lugs on the KS47 is designed for the AK mags and therefore will not work with an AR 7.62x39 bolt that is designed for use with AR magazines.

A: If your Palmetto Arms AR47 utilizes AR15 components then this bolt assembly will work.

Q: Are your bolts HPT/MPI tested?

Asked by: Ed S - 1/4/2019
A: The supplier of our bolt assemblies uses a reputable metal company that does the HPT testing on their raw metals, and thus bolts are not marked as independent testing through manufacture is not done after machining. MPI testing is done in batches, while many mfg will engrave MPI on batch tested bolt assemblies we feel unless each bolt is tested it should not bear that marking.

Q: Just saw you have a 7.62x39 bolt. Looks promising. Have you sold many? Have they held up to heavy use? Any extractor problems? How have you solve the problem of broken extractors that so many manufacturers are having? What is your warranty on the bolt?

Asked by: Doug - 2/8/2017
A: We've have sold thousands of bolts. I have had to replace one bolt, and a few extractors, but for the amount we have sold it's a very low percentage of failures. Warranty is 6 months. If one is breaking extractors on a regular basis then something else is going on with the rifle such as the bolt trying to strip a casing out before it has had time to shrink, so one would need to slow the bolt carrier down.

Q: What do you mean by "true 7.62x39 bolt"? What does the .125" recess do? Does that mean you can use a regular firing pin and not need an enhanced one? If so, what if you were to use this bolt with the recess and an enhanced firing pin? Thanks

Asked by: Dave - 10/17/2015
A: We state a "true" 7.62x39 bolt because we use the original specs of a .125" recess of the breach face of the bolt. Some in the industries think a 7.62x39 and a 6.5 Grendel have the same breach face which have lead to confusion and having some manufacturers headspacing barrels with a 6.5 Grendel breach face which is .135" which can lead to serious headspace issues.

One would still need to use an enhanced firing pin with standard 7.62x39 bolts for steel case ammunition.

Q: Just curious if there would be any substantial gains upgrading to the Melonite bolt assembly over your previous model? Thanks.

Asked by: Lucas Magilke - 5/20/2015
A: The bolts themselves, outside of being Melonited QPQ, are a higher level of machining itself and the extractor is outstanding. Besides the machining and extractor alone, the finish is far superb than phosphate. Melonite diffuses into the surface of the steel metal. The benefits of Melonite QPQ are: wear resistance, corrosion resistance, lubricity and/or decreased coefficient of friction and fatigue strength.
