Anyone have someone reputable in the DFW area that does this? Or a recommendation of where to mail it off to? I have a LH SA Rem 700 bolt that needs to be jeweled-

Thanks!

What is bolt jeweling? Adding bling to your bolt?

That's exactly what it is. I've considered it on my 10/22, just never makes it up the priority list.

You've seen jeweled bolts. Shiny patterns ground into the bolt, along its' length. Used to be common on Rem 700 CDL, and Super Grade Win 70's, I believe.

I've always wondered what the process is for jeweling a bolt. I guess I should pay my Google bill and see if I can find a video.

Kampfeld Custom can do it. I had him flute my bolt and install a larger knob. Very fast turnaround, I believe I got my bolt back in 4 days.

Well looky there.

It takes some pretty specialized tools to do it right. Pretty damn cool.

That's what I said. I guess by bolts will stay dull black.

Rifle bolts were "jeweled" to provide a medium to hold a layer of lubrication using the "Gun Oil" of the day and make the bolt's operation slicker than greased snot... a descriptive term I learned from my NROTC Firearms Instructor at Admiral Farragut Academy at St Petersburg Florida in 10th grade in 1959..along with other usable command terms like "find me the KEYS to the oarlocks"...and God help you if you operated the 'O3 A3 Springfield's you lived with on your bunk, bolt with your finger tips, instead of the pocket at the edge of your palm just below the thumb joint...'cause that's the only place as his swagger stick would "instruct" you where the Springfield's smooth round bolt knob was supposed to go when you obeyed the command to show him your palm to see if you'd been using it for any unauthorized other nite time activity's...

I heard jeweling a bolt will shrink your group size in half.
