  • firing pin on winchester 600 22lr

    Good day.

    Not sure how to ask this because my technical knowledge regarding rifles is limited, but here goes.
    Not long ago I accidentally sheered the bolt off of my 22lr winchester 600. Not a big drama, as I got the rifle cheaply, but as a "clean up" rifle it's really good.
    Anyway, I had the bolt welded back on, but now, I"ll be lucky to ignite 1 in 7 rounds. It seems to be striking the case just fine, given in the indent on the cartridge, but maybe it's just not quite there, I don't know.
    Is there something I can do, or should I be looking for a replacement bolt? I just might ask around for a bolt anyway.
    Thank you for your help and look forward to your reply.

    Improper firing pin strike can be the cause of a rimfire’s misfire. In this illustration,
    only one of the firing pin strikes can produce 100-percent reliable ignition.

      you may have to build up the back of the bolt handle so that the bolt pushes forward it sounds like a head space problem very easy to fix a dab of weld and file fit
