    Does anyone know if the stock bolt on the 32 and the 80 have the same size hex head? MM not length. Mike

    Yeah, my 32, a 1961 import, had a slotted head and I converted to the newer bolt and had a hole bored in the recoil pad so I could remove the stock without disturbing the pad.....Bob Dodd

    BC and Bob Dodd, I was using my k-80 stock wrench on the 32 and could not get the bolt out. My 32 is a very early model. Wasted an hour or so. I'll have to look for a screw driver long enough. Thanks, Mike.

    Mike with the pad off you should be able to get some light down the hole and see for your own self. Give that a try to be sure. I failed to mention above that the reason I made that upgrade was because I already had the Kgun handy dandy wrench in the KS case and one tool for both is handy.....Bob Dodd

    Mike , there is a difference in length between the K-32 and K-80. Whenever changing bolts , make sure the new bolt does not protrude to far into the receiver to impede travel of the inertia block. Jeff

    good point Jeff

    Its not the difference in the action usually K32 v. K80 but how the stock bolt hole was drilled in the wood

    Has to be long enough to hold it but not too long so that it will protrude and lock up the action

    regards from Iowa
