    Possibly. I only have the bolt Sid T sent me to look at so I don't know if they are all the same or if they made changes over the years. M11/9 bolts changed. But if you sent me a current production bolt I would think yes. I would knock the price of the bolt off the total.

    The only issue I'm aware of among the .380 bolts is that on some, the grooves for the magazine feedlips aren't deep enough. You can guess why I know that!

    FYI, the bolt I sent was brand new, current production, so we know that at the very least it has the new style extractor.

    Well, I suppose if we have to buy a new bolt, that's what we'll do. And, while I prefer the old school bolts, I do concede that the new style extractor works much better. Plus, its a whole lot easier to find replacements for as well!

    Concord, where did you get the under milled bolt? I would love to create a list of reliable MFGers.

    I would be great if Lage started stocking OEM .380 bolts and uppers. The variations on the newly produced stuff is staggering.
    The 380 MAC is the best caliber or they would not have put on the cover of THE MAC MAN. ;)

    It was from FTF industries... they took it back for a full refund.

    Also, my MAX-11A/9 came from LAGE with the same issue... I sent Richard back the bolt, he milled the grooves a little deeper, and sent it back to me and it's great now.

    My LAGE MAX-31A didn't have that issue.

    I suspect that my 1985 SWD M11A1 is at the bleeding edge of tolerances in that regard.

    We have been making our own bolts for our uppers since earlier this year. We do have plans to make bolts for the OEM uppers, but bolts for our uppers are the priority right now. The OEM style bolts will have lightening cuts on the top and sides and we plan to offer chrome plated bolts, as well.

    lightening cuts would make for a more reliable weighted bolt. It would reduce friction and friction isn't constant, It changes with factors like lubrication and wearing-polishing of the bearing surfaces. Hard chrome would be excellent in reducing wear on the bolt and could match the tungsten making it so I wouldn't have to finish it.

    Are you going to make them for all three weapons?

    A .45 bolt would get my interest. I love running the Lage for it's ROF but I mainly shoot my stock upper with a can. It would be great to shoot stock, silent, and slow.

    That is excellent news. I love that the OEM lightening cut will come back.

    Yes, all the bolts- M-11A1, M-11/9, M-10/9, M-10/45

    Don't expect them within 6 months though.

    That would give me a chance to catch up on the M11/9 orders and make and test the 45 and do more testing on the 380 bolt. I've been thinking about the chrome plating. I don't think it would work for me because I have to do some welding on the pin holes to connect the tungsten. But the relief cuts would mean the bolts would only wear on the bearing surfaces so the finish should hold up a lot better.

    I want one of the .380 bolts for my M11A1 as a companion for my M11/9 bolt.

    CF,

    If you want to play around with a 9mm M11A1 upper, let me know and I'll ship it to ya. Its the upper Strobro had last year. That bolt could use a little slowing down.

    I'm trying to save the $ for an m11 and CFW Bolt now,& if you do it, I will have to save even more for an m10&CFW bolt for it,also for a 380&CFW Bolt!
    That's too much!!!
