You know how it is. You get online and look at all those high end rifles with fluted bolts and just want one. But for a 125$ thats a steep price to pay. So I decided to do my own. First one I did was my model 12FV. It was quite easy. Made a few minor mistakes and wish I had made the flutes longer but it still looks good. Set up is quite involved though.
The hexagonal flutes were quick and easy to do. I think now that I have done two of them, the next one will also be a hexagonal flat flute. It seams to take of the most material. May even try a 5 sided flute. This one above was 6 sided.
Next was a long action bolt from my Savage Axis. Decided to use a ball end mill and did much longer flutes. Turned out really good. I am getting better.
If you want me to flute your bolt contact me. I would charge $50 for a short action and $60 for a long action. That gets you a size sides straight flute.
For the rounded ball type flutes I would charge $60 for a short action and $70 for a long action. That is also a size sided flute. If your have multiple bolts I can work out a discounted deal for you. Doing one bolt after another saves me time on setup so I will work out a discount for you.
