Can anyone recommend a parts source other than Numrich? I picked up a 80DL for my son and the bolt will occasionally come uncocked. It appears to be worn on the breech bolt and where the striker knob notch together. I've debated trying to file both down a bit to get them to lock in better. Ideally though I think replacing both would be the best choice. Numrich lists them but are sold out (schematic call outs 80-65 and 80-6). The only other source I've stumbled across on the net is Bob's and they already told me they don't have the parts.
Any assistance will be appreciated.
Before going to all the trouble of locating a bolt, which is near impossible, I`d take a real good look at the sear and trigger group first. It`s not an uncommon problem in the early production Model 80 series.
And if it comes down to a new bolt, there are two different bolts for that rifle, early and late production that are not interchangeable. A replacement would need the headspace reset too.
I think I sold the last complete late production bolt available about a year ago on this forum, from listing time to selling was less than 5 min.
Shoot that Marlin `93, that`s what they were made for.
Thanks, Mountie. I wasn't really looking to replace the entire bolt. Just the rear breech bolt and the striker knob. I'll take a look at the sear and trigger but the problem occurs with the bolt open. The only way to close the bolt then is to pull back on the striker knob and turn it to the detent position which is where I'm seeing wear.
Give Dick Williams a try...

+1 for Dick Williams.
Roe turned me to them about a year ago when I was on the hunt for charging handle for a Savage 6a. They had the part and shipped it out very quickly. Give them a call.

Had the same problem with my model 80.
It's the trigger spring or sear spring order both they are less then $10 for both.

Thanks for the input from all. I contacted Dick Williams and they did in fact have the parts. Ordered both and the springs as well. Guess time will tell now.
