Should be easy to tell by looking at it no? I never even held an XLR but I dont think the bolts are stainless.
Hard to make a mistake like that. None of the round bolts are blued. The XLR's have a fluted bolt for sure, I think that the flutes may be blued & thats what surprised 336XLR since the rest is in the white. But its not really in the white. I'm thinking they just take a regular nickle plated 336 bolt, cut the flutes into it & blue them. A unplated steel bolt would get ugly quick I think.jnicol6600 said:I dont think an xlr would have a blued bolt ???. Probably a mistake from the factory. I think the xlr's should have a fluted bolt
I cant see it good. Is the whole bolt blued or just the flutes? None really look nickle plated but they are. I believe the term Tomray used was "Electroless nickle plated" The first ones were chrome acording to things I'v read.336xlr said:if you look at the picture I put on my profile you can see that it is blued. And surfaces that are blank have no signs of being nickelplated.
Kinda but different. None of the round bolts are blued so they'd have to actually make one special to install incorrectly. I'm going to have to find an XLR I guess to look at closer.jnicol6600 said:Ya like putting a regular lever and a blued mag tube hanger on a sbl ;D. I saw a new stbl at a gun show that had a fluted xlr bolt in it instead of the one it should have. or maybe they just didnt care?
Nothing there about a stainless bolt.Action Lever action; side ejection; stainless steel receiver, barrel, lever, trigger guard plate, magazine tube and loading gate. Hammer block safety.
