    Jerry, great job on my bolt! A week ago I sent Jerry my bolt, got it back today and would like to show a picture but gave up a long ago trying that. Anyway he did a great job and fast turnaround time on bushing my bolt!

    Nice! It’s great to have options other than Greg Tannel since he seems to be so backed up at the moment.

    Yes, imI not saying anything bad about Greg, he has done good work for me in the past but as you say, he told me 6 to 8 weeks. Jerry's work is just as professional as I've seen anywhere!

    Very nice work Jerry, as usual. Hard to really see where the bushing or bolt face meet. Very cool!:D:D

    Thanks Paul. Sorry the picture is a bit blurry. The fit turned out really well but the photo I snapped before sending it back turned out a bit blurry.

    The photo of the firing pin cross pin turned out better. Farmerjohn must have a lot of rounds on this old pierce bolt. The pin was starting to yield. I replaced it for him.

    Jerry just did a replacement bolt for me a couple weeks ago. He did an outstanding job bushing the bolt and installing an m-16 style extractor to pull PPC cases. He also provided a new firing pin that fit perfectly. His communication was excellent, providing pictures and several options to what I was trying to achieve. Although it's a very old bolt (no checkering on knob), it matched up perfectly with the action (which is also very old). It performs flawlessly. Thank you Jerry! dedogs

    Dedogs that is an awesome bolt that I was saving for myself but now I'm using PTG bolts so I'm glad it went to a good home. Thanks for the kind words.
