An unusual bolt bushing project that I thought I would share info on for posterity. This bolt needed to be bushed and a bolt lift kit installed. It is a Savage 12 in 6BR. It's a single feed rifle so there is no need for the ejector. I cut a rod about .001 undersized and then the last .1in of it was oversized so that when it was pressed in it would hold. The pin was made long enough to reach the bottom of the ejector plunger hole. You can see the pin being turned to size and about to be parted off. Next up I cut it flush to the face then pressed in the bolt bushing for the firing pin. Then went through the typical process of bushing it. I had two firing pins to choose from. One was brand new and the other was the original to the rifle. The new one was very crooked so it was set aside. Seams like about 90% of Savage firing pins are crooked. You can see here to that the two springs are not the same length. This is typical of Savage springs and components. They very a lot it seams and no two are the same even if both are brand new. I chose the shorter one as a lot of spring force will not be needed anymore now that the firing pin tip is smaller. Finished product. Still some slight depression from the beveled edge of the ejector plunger hole but there is now more support for the case head. The bolt head was also trued up during this process.
