Default 700 Bolt upgrades

Well I just got my bolt disassembly tool. It is ridiculously simple to remove the firing pin. Is there any upgrades I should look into?

All it really does is push that "silver button" up so you can unscrew the body, right?

Yeah. It is crazy the bolt practically takes itself apart with it. I know there are ways to do it without it but this is so simple.

Not on a stock 700 bolt. Can cause issues. If its a bolt thats made for it, they're pretty nice.

+1 Agree with above, its a unnecessary upgrade to do on a .473 bolt face and smaller, IMHO. Randy Cain @ R&D Precision only recommends it when going the SA WSM route.

If the USMC & US ARMY over many decades/conflicts/training/wars & SWAT Coast to Coast can do with the "factory" extractor, we should be good to go as well. Not to say we should follow their lead if there is a better sub, but nothing known at this time in this case.

I'd just make sure its clean & your GTG !!!

Happy Holidays !!!

I would tighten up the fit to the receiver and reinforce the junction of the bolt knob to the bolt body.
There are various different ways to do this so I won't go into specifics.

sleeving is not recommended either if your shooting for competition. you'll end up getting sand on your bolt and grind your action.

Putting on the sleeve sucks.. I could imagine sand on my bolt being rather displeasing. Personally, I prefer a little grinding with my action
