Do we prefer Forester brand GO - NO-GO gages?  Clymer, or what?

I have several Model 70 06, 270 with mixed up unmarked, wrong bolts.  That's why.

Greetings,

Gauges made by a reputable manufacturer will function the same.

Ask around the Gun Club. I would not be surprised if someone has a set.

Or, visit your local gunsmith.

Cheers,

Dave

Clymer or Forster, all work the same.

yep I've used them from most all of the Reamer makers and they all are fine.

these days I'm strictly a Manson user. perfect products and a pleasure to deal with.



BTW a set of 25-06, 30-06 or 338-06 will all work for your 270

eBay often has auctions for used head space gauges.

Don't forget Manson. I have examples from all the above plus Manson and all give equal measurements I am a little leery of PTG these days but the reamers I have from them work well.

Thanks everyone.  I got a 3 piece set of Forster on the way.

I will have to label better my bolts when I take them out.  Also a prewar 70 and a early post war 70 have non original.  I also have a 375 M70 that I would check if I was ever going to shoot it.  I am not into cannons anymore. 
Next I think I will get some 223 and rimfire gages.

Your.model 70s should have the last few digits of the serial number on the bottom of the bolt body. I store all my pre 64 bolts separately from the rifles.

OK, I have to know. Why keep them separate? It compresses the firing pin spring to the max for long periods of time and one runs the risk of mixing bolts and receivers which can lead to disaster if the wrong combination of parts come into play.
Just curious.

All of my bolts carry the rifles serial number so it's easy to put them back in the right gun.. why separate. Just a form of security. Mine are not shooters to me. Strickly collectors so I don't worry about the springs and i have plenty of spare parts for them

Used to collect the pre 64s.

Once you match the bolt to the gun, you can mark the bolt bodies with this gizmo.
