Have the barrel cut to 26" and 14#s. Need bolt so I can build a receiver to it. Thanks for any help

If you can build a receiver, you can build a bolt; start with 4140 or 8620 and copy an AR50 bolt; it uses major bolt diameter lugs so you don't have to broach lug ways in the receiver. 3 lugs.

Was wanting to cheat a bit on the bolt so I would not have to "strain my brain"-lol.

I don't blame you but I doubt if anyone will sell a bolt. I am sure they won't due to liability reasons.

I got a Safety Harbor upper and they sell parts, so I got all the parts I could (including a bolt) and will build the receiver. I will use the one I bought as a guide. I already had an M2 barrel I got 35 years ago and cut down (unfortunately, they've skyrocketed in price).

Wow, this wasn't very far down the posts and I didn't realize how old it was!
