Original Precision STEEL Bolt Conversions for current production Smiths. Replaces the factory POWDERED METAL MIM CYLINDER UNLOCKING bolt with an all Steel one.
These are a must for CCW, COMPETITION, COMBAT HANDGUNNERS, FIELD CARRY FOR PREDATORS and any other Smith you are betting on.
SOLID STEEL PARTS MAKE SENSE
Had a few threads pop off the top of my current production MIM cylINDER unlocking bolt so I FABRICATED a steel replacement by REBUILDING THE PIVOT STUD ON a new old stock solid steel N frame bolt to work in my 329PD. I do these for J K L N Z frames. When I set mine up I referred to the Smith Armorers three ring binder to verify proper fitment.
Donor bolt PIVOT STUDS are short and don't unlock very well at all. THEY Don't get the cylinder pin clear of the FRAME far enough. Makes it catch on the FRAME and is difficult to open.
These function and unlock the cylinder VERY smoothly when I am done with them. Only takes a slight nudge to roll cylinder open.
A donor bolt gets reworked. Steel is correctly added/built up on the pivot stud, pivot stud is hand worked back to proper shape and trued to rest of assembly, pivot stud machined to the correct length for each frame size, part goes thru booth to get cleaned up then ran thru THE black oxide station and it's ready to go. NOT AS EASY AS IT SOUNDS.
I DO THEM TWO WAYS
PREFIT - THIS IS THE EXACT SIZE I HAVE
FIT INTO YOUR FRAME SIZE.
OVERSIZE - LEAVES THE PIVOT STUD
LONG FOR YOU TO FIT.

factory bolt out of my 329PD, note the recess at the bottom of the pivot stud. easy way to tell the difference between the current powdered metal mim bolts and the old steel machined ones.
factory bolt beside the steel donor bolt
Donor Bolt in place fully forward. Too short creates a catch and hard to unlock. This is why I have to rebuild the pivot stud on these.
finished Steel Bolt Conversion ready to drop in your gun. You can see the pits I mentioned earlier. Nothing I can do about those it's how this bolt came in when ordered. Even with pits its still a well worth it conversion since you will now have a steel cylinder unlocking bolt.
