'Philngruvy' Bolt Question?

I tried responding to Phil's question, but, the thread seems to have disappeared.

He has an 1894 marked Krag with a later model bolt. He wondered if that was "safe".

It is safe to use a later model (good) Krag bolt in a model 1892 action.

The bolt he has may be a model 1898 bolt. It is missing its Safety and he is trying to find one.

I would suggest trying one of the vendors listed in KCA 'Classifieds'.

I don't see model 1898 Safeties listed too often on ebay. It may be easier and cheaper to buy a complete Bolt-Sleeve, with Safety & Extractor attached. (I don't have a spare).

Attached is a picture of a model 1896 bolt (in the white) and a model 1898 bolt (that someone 'blued'). Note - a model 1898 bolt has a longer 'flat area' on the bottom of the handle (to clear the model 1898 Stock).

Thank you BR.  Yes I deleted the thread.  I am a paranoid newby and I was afraid that my question was a stupid one , because it went unanswered for a pretty long time.  I do appreciate that you took the time to answer my question.  I still have not found a safety.  Well actually I did, but I thought it was too much money.  I might have to reconsider.
