Once it has bent, it has lost it's integrity and should be replaced. I do make a bolt bench block for holding the 66/73 bolt secure for pin removal. I was on the other posse at Prescott yesterday and had some bolt bench blocks with me. Too bad I didn't know about your problem then. I'm just over the hill in Camp Verde. Contact me at: email@example.com if you're interested in a bolt bench block. KingSnake
I like my Shotgun Boogie short strokes that I installed myself. I've done 4 of them and they all run great. I shoot one set and Shotgun Shannon shoots the other set. I also have a set that Johnny Meadows did that are equally great.
