    I know this may rile up some remington guys. Not intended too.

    Now that there are Rem/age prefIt barrels available.
    Does anyone make a replacement model 700 bolt with floating bolt head?

    The new model 770 employs a floating bolt head design. It seems there might be a good market for something like this

    I think the new Shilen action is a Remington footprint with a floating bolt head.
    You might call them and see if they can help you.

    I sent shilen an email.
    I have a couple savages as well as a couple remington
    I have an older ADL 700 I would like to replace the sporter weight barrel with a
    pre fit in 6br.

    Just thought there would be a good market for a replacement bolt to solve the action truing issue.

    That might take away a lot of business maybe?
    idk
