Good day all I am new to the site and this is my first post, hope it goes well... anyway I am looking for a bolt for a 540xr to be specific, I know that other bolt options exist and I am looking for any advice that someone may have on those as well.

The rifle was damaged in a fire and is at the gunsmith right now, he knows I have a collection of 540 so he asked me to help, since I believe this rifle is a part of "Americana" if you will, I told him I would make some posts and see what I could find. Apperently the rifle has a great deal of centimental value to his customer.

all help and/or sugestions are welcome If more information is needed please let me know and I will try to provide it.

Thanks Tom

I had a spare 580 bolt, but traded it away a while back for a 540XR trigger.
