Thread: Vanguard bolt body

  1. #1

    Default Vanguard bolt body

    I have an older long action Vanguard that has had the bolt face opened up to about .590. Guess they were gonna put one of the big Weatherbys in it. Weatherby wants $200 for a new bolt body plus labor. Numrich sells Mossberg 1500 / S&W 1500 bolt bodies for $58.00. Will one of these work?
    Thanks in advance,

    The Mossberg and the S&W are the same firearm. Mossberg bought the import rights too the S&W 1500 from Howa in 1985. You will still need to have a gunsmith check the headspace no matter which bolt you buy. You buying the .532 or .473 bolt?

    Not sure yet. Will take awhile to decide what caliber to make out of it. So many choices. Thanks for the info.
