They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? ~ Patrick Henry 1775

Savage Rifle MK II Bolt Shims

Savage Rifle Bolt Shims - Experimental / Prototype

Savage Bolt Shim

This shim is offered only as a trial for Field Testers, made by customer request in 2020, only a few trials with poor results

Use as a Temporary Try-Out Shim, expect it not to last - read the review below

I only offer these because a couple guys really wanted to try them, and I was getting asked about them all the time, so we gave it a try, but in general, they will not last, the bolt was not designed to have a round shim installed

They are posted here mostly as an artifact, so guys can read about them and see why they will not work.

.480" X .648" Outside Diameter

This Bolt Shim will have to be Formed to Fit by the User ~ See Photo for Example

Our latest Field Tester Harold had disappointing results with this shim,

👉 Comments from Field Tester Harold; "after about 30 cycles of the bolt the shim bends back up a little bit, I went ahead and cycled the bolt about 50 more times and it was still working ok and the bend doesn't seem to be bent any worse - I took the rifle out to the range with the shim installed, it lasted about 60 rounds the bend became worse and caused the bolt to hang, I got it out and removed the shim which had broken from getting snagged"

TECH TIP: Rimfire Bolt Shim Installation
~ A General Guide ~

Rimmed Cartridges use the thickness of the cartridge rim for head-spacing .22 Rimfires Headspace on the Case Rim, and the actual head space is in the recessed face of the bolt.
Shimming between the two bolt halves ensures the bolt is up gently tight against the breech.
I cannot tell you which shim best works with your rifle, you decide that yourself by fitting and feel and by shooting.
Installing Bolt Shims requires fitting by hand, and checking with the Bolt installed in the Rifle, and Locked Down - you do not measure with the Bolt out of the Rifle.
To establish the Bolt/Breech fit, shims are installed and fitted on an empty chamber. Start with a 4 or 5 Pak of shims, install the .0015" or .002" thinnest shim and see how your bolt closes, if it seems to close as normal, then continue to install each thicker shim until the bolt starts to close harder than normal. At the point where your bolt begins to close hard, that was the amount of slack that was in your bolt, measured by whatever shim or shims combined were needed to bring the bolt up tight to the breech. Now it is best to remove that shim, and step back one number, example would be if a .005" Red shim causes the bolt handle to close harder than normal, then take it out and install a .004" Purple.
If you have to force or put undue stress on your bolt to close it, you should reduce the number of shims. You will generally only use 1 of the 4 or 5 shims in the package, but you can stack shims together if needed. When you have the correct shim installed, your bolt should close normally or just (ever-so) slightly tighter than normal. Put a very small drop of oil on the shim. Now you can go to the range and with the barrel pointed in a safe direction, once again check fit with your favorite ammo. Due to variations in rim thickness, you may have to reduce the thickness of shims, remember you have already removed all the excess headspace from the bolt/breech, so now the only thing to do is remove thickness (shims) if / as needed to get to your sweet spot.
For Longest Shim Life, once you have have correctly fitted your shims Top Canadian Shooter Dan Walker from Inrange Rimfire recommends using a heavy grease.
If you have to force or put undue stress on your bolt to close it, you should reduce the number of shims. A minimum of clearance should be maintained, do not put undue stress on the bolt by shimming too tightly as it is unnecessary!
At no time do you want to force the bolt to close, did I explain that clearly?
Bolt Shims have in many instances cured light strikes. Will they help with Accuracy? Don't take my word for it, Read our the Customer Reviews or ask our Customers
Simply Chambering More Consistently, Yields More Consistent Results.
Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed, if you feel you got no benefit, you may send your shims back for a Full Refund.
