Remington mod 12A bolt failure.

So I had a little problem today while doing some plinking. Its probably only hade a million rounds through it, lol!

So now i’m on the hunt for a new (or old) bolt for a Remington mod 12A… :sob::sob::sob:

Not sure about Australia but here is on lot.

Yeah I looked there but they’re out of stock, numrich won’t ship one to Australia.
I recon I’ll find one at a gun show if I can’t track one down first. I’m gonna make a few calls tomorrow once the shops are open.

There was a parts quality mostly complete one at Kerang Toyworld a while ago. I haven’t been there for a while though.

Thanks mate I’ll give them a call tomorrow :+1:

Think it’s a fairly common problem. Father in law has a broken one. I think I found new ones in America or Canada. But didn’t investigate it any further. Will be interested to see if you have any luck sourcing a replacement.

@GUN-DMC Now I know your thoughts on this lot but they may be worth a call if you haven’t already.

Just looking on their web page (very crappy page) and they have a model 12A for sale in the firearms sale section.

So tried this little plinker out, seems that when the bolt snapped the loose bit got slammed into the back of the barrel and it’s caused a little burr so the bitch won’t load as the cases catch.
I’m guessing I can clean it up with the dremel or maybe a little file, anyway still in the project box for this one.

You could have been fixing it rather than typing!

I’m buggered after moving fishtanks and furniture all day, I can barely be bothered typing tbh.
I’m only up coz I can’t think of a reason to send the girls to bed yet. :grin:
