    OP,
    Depending on handle vintage-
    G prefix serial numbered receiver to present RR prefix receivers.

    The above mentioned handles are of "Short Cam" design as I've coined them.
    Einstein &/or Houdini are incapable of TIMING said handles. w/o other issues addressed...FIRST.

    The longitudinal inserts as per a Kelbly's action will NOT fix the issue,,,but make matters worse.


    Cut up the bastardized bolts to get them out of circulation
    Purchase bodies from PT&G in 1piece or 2 piece configuration w/ the appropriate breech configuration that suites your fancy.

    I think this bloke must have just used an old nail, it is pretty well worn away now but it worked really well

    At how Rimrock extractors are installed before you deem that folks should cut up their bolts, Just sayin.

    To fix your botched SAKO extractor issue-

    Press fit a piece of drill rod in the extractor pivot"thru"hole.
    Fusion TIG weld pin.

    Machine for pinned mini 16 or m16 extractor, depending on SAKO width machine work.

    Fix the handle TIMING issue.

    Done

    A "T" bar extractor install in fwd face of RH bolt lug-

    I'd suggest that you take some simple measurements before attempting to install one in the fwd face of the RH bolt lug in a Rem bolt head.
    hint-mean dimensions-
    bolt nose to breech face=.150"
    bolt nose to fwd face of bolt lug=.150"

    Good Luck....you'll need it!!!!!!

    My bolt is no more dangerous than many other rifles being shot on a regular basis. I plan to re-time the action myself.

    Welllll, here's what I did

    Got to thinking about this and came up with the idea of a shim. I figured if I cut a shim the same size as the face of the cam surface on the bolt and bonded it to the bolt, it would be the same as moving the bolt handle. I measured the gap between the action and the front of the bolt handle and subtract a clearance amount, which seems to be around .010". So, I remembered I had a shim kit from Brownells. I needed .020". Best I could do was .015" so I cut one and bonded it to the cam surface on the bolt ------ AND------ it works. I am trying to decide if I want to add another .005" but the .015" seems to work the very best. I expect it to fail at some point but it survived a day at the range yesterday; but I do expect it to come a-loose at some point.

    The mother of invention is - - - - ?

    of loading pictures here is or use to be complicated as I recall so if you PM me your email or phone number, I'll gladly send you a picture. I used Loctite Professional Super Glue to bond it.

    It isn't working as well as I would like but at least it works now.

    A means to an end, if you will. I'll prolly send it off to a willing relocator after the shooting season is over.
