    Don't laugh boys! I shot practice today for the first time since November. During the last practice round, the gun felt loose/strange. Fired one more shot and looked down and there was a gap between the wood and receiver. Walked off the line fearing damage if I continued. The stock fell off onto the ground. The head of the stock bolt snapped off from the shank of the bolt! Do I have to contact Seitz for one of these or might there be another source?! Thanks, Tom Rhoads

    Tom, I had to replace my stock bolt when I was shooting a Seitz. I went to a "Fastenal" store and they had the right bolt in stock.

    Hope this helps.

    If you contact Seitz, I'm sure they will send one no-charge.

    If it were my Silver Seitz, I'd take the 2 parts of the bolt, assuming I had them, and send them to Silver Seitz with a nice letter. I'd explain that the Silver Seitz is such a well made firearm it's a shock that this bolt would break. And I thought they'd like to see it iso they can examine it for any defects. I'd also ask them to send me a new one and offer to pay for it. I suspect I'd be surprised. I'd also include my phone number and email n case they want to contact me to talk about how it sheared.
