    Default J-Lock Bolt Safety on Model 7

    My Model 7 350 Rem Mag has one of those dreaded J-Lock Lawyer Safety devices on the bolt/firing pin assembly....

    I hate the thing and would love to get rid of it... Besides the fact that it destroys the clean look of the gun, I keep wondering when it is going to fail on me...

    I took the assembly apart and noticed that the firing pin spring appears to be too long because the spring bulges out... this is particulalry irritaing becuase this is a custom shop gun.

    Do you guys know of a fix for this problem (J lock and spring)?

    I'm certainly no smith, so I would love to be able to buy a complete replacement assembly that just screws back in.

    Thanks!

    Matt

    You can snip off 1 mm at a time on the spring.Iknow its not much but it does help.

    You can just do away with it all together if you wish:

    Thanks guys...

    Do you know if the short action Model 700 assembly is the same at the Model 7? Brownells or Midway doesn't label one for the Model 7, but I was thinking they might be the same...

    I do have a Model 700 in 7mm08 , I suppose I could take it apart and compare the two...

    I agree with Randy and have used replacements from Brownell's and Midway, but if your rifle is from the custom shop you might want to consider: http://www.davidtubb.com/tcom_images...m_striker.html as a replacement part.
