STEEL CYLINDER RELEASE FOR S&W REVOLVERS
PUT A STEEL PART IN YOUR GUN YOU CAN RELY ON
15 TO 30 MINUTES
STEEL CYLINDER RELEASE
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
New part available. 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 most all Smith 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.
IMPORTANT - I do these in two configurations due to the potential variances from one gun to another. These new Smiths are pretty consistent as far as swapping some parts from one to another without extra hand fitting. Which way you want your steel bolt done is up to you.
Pre-fit Steel Bolt
When you order this way what you will get is a steel bolt that has been set up exactly like mY PROTOTYPES TO the same dimensions, it will drop in and work in your gun. It will unlock smoothly you can be sure of that, you may need to tune the tip of the pivot stud a bit or you may not depending on your gun. Quick slip across a fine stone will do the trick if you need to adjust it a thou or two for your gun. Most likely you won't have to do anything but put it in and use it. the current Smiths should be pretty consistent in the area this part lives. When ONE COMES UP for a new frame size I wiLL locate a fitting gun out here in AZ to set that frame size up on. it may take a little longer to get the first one out for a new frame size but after thE first one it'll be a quick turn arounD. I'll match my prototype when I make your Steel Bolt.
"I'll fit my own"
Order this way AND I leave the pivot stud a little long. you will have to fit this part with a file or whatever means you like to use to do the adjustments to it. DO NOT USE PLUNGER AND SPRING WHEN YOU START TO FIT IT. FINAL FIT WITH PLUNGER AND SPRING IS CORRECT. Once you start to fit it you own it just like any other part you buy and customize, you only have one shot to get this one right. If you take off too much steel its back to square one and you'll have to send it in to me to have me do the conversion again. Later I may install AND fit these thru a local FFL dealer here in AZ.
I'll Do these once or twice a week keep that in mind when you order. Should turn around in my shop pretty quick this way.
If you are providing the steel donor bolt the turn around will be a little quicker from the time I get the order till the time I ship your Steel Bolt Conversion out to you. Your bolt will get tagged in at my shop so the one you send is the same one you get back.
I can order the parts so you don't have to. Some of the thinking about you providing the donor part is that you have a chance to look at the donor part and make sure you are happy with it before I do the work.
Good example is the steel donor bolt I ordered to do the first one of these in my 329PD CARRY gun was a new old stock part so it has pits ect in the surfaces. I was fine with that since it's machined steel and well worth doing the conversion on for me TO HAVE A STEEL PART IN MY GUN NOT A MIM ONE.
If I order the part you get the one they send to me pitted etc and you will be alright with this they are what they are I don't get to hand pick the parts. IF THEY SEND junk I will return it for a good one for you. Doubt they vary much from the picture below, where I get them is a large well known and reputable parts company.
If yoU don't know which bolt you need then order and have me get your steel donor bolt.
Or get ahold of me and I'll figure out which one you need and tell you which one to get IF YOU WANT TO PROVIDE THE DONOR BOLT. I CAN WORK WITH USED BOLTS AS LONG AS THEY ARE IN GOOD SHAPE.
You can reuse the spring and plunger from the factory one in your new STEEL Bolt Conversion.

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 before I did the conversion on the steel 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 Combat 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.
