Essential Bolt Rifle Maintenance
As part of your firearms familiarity and maintenance plan of a bolt action rifle, the bolt should be one of the most important components to have functioning safely and properly at all times. Therefore your ability to disassemble, clean / repair, reassemble and test your firearms bolt should never be overlooked.
In the attached video I demonstrate the bolts disassembly, areas to examine and clean, reassembly and functionality of the bolt for the .22 Anschutz Match 54 Action.
How Often Do You Clean Your Bolt!
I clean the bolt of my .22 lr firearm during and after each range visit, as a lot of lead deposits can begin to build up on the bolt face after approx 50+ rounds.
