Thought I'd write a review on the forged bolts 7.62mm is offering. With the help of Ripsaw got it installed and running like a top. This was a replacement for the rifle with the cracked USGI bolt I posted a while back. I work overseas so it took me some time to get back and get it installed.
The good, it seems to be very well made and is very close to USGI specs, and very close to TRW overall. Also it looks to be heat treated properly. Being that the receiver is a 7.62 and the bolt is 7.62 they mated perfectly and took very little lapping to fit and head spaced perfectly.
The bad, it needs a chamfer on the end of the bolt where it enters the chamber and the bolt roller was 20 thou wider than USGI and was causing binding with the brownell's op rod. The chamfer was easy enough to fix. The slightly wider roller was easy to fix as well, and if it'd been a USGI op rod it may not have caused a problem. In any even it wasn't hard to grind 20 thou off the roller and stud.
All in all a very nice bolt, especialy for a forged bolt for the price and any decent smith should not have any trouble installing it. Glad I bought one as a spare.
