Well, I had mentioned a couple months ago that my s2k had wallowed out the charging handle hole in the bolt and pretty much eaten up the recoil spring pin.
I got a new handle and pin from Mcarbo on warranty just fine, but they would not provide a bolt carrier, probably since they didn’t manufacture that part …
Keltec had no bolts in stock.
I did finally get a " heavy " bolt carrier from Keltec last week. It’s brass however and not exactly a work of the machining arts. Not bad, just not blemish free as they say. I polished some edges and such just to make me happier.
I fought that silly spring locking pin thingee and did end up winning the battle and the locking pin is indeed seated properly in the spring and I didn’t even lose an eye or anything major …
Went back together and this did in fact tighten up the charging handle nice and snug and everything seems to cycle just fine.
I will try to get some ammo through it this next week to see if the heavy bolt works well or not . I’m not all that concerned with any recoil issues I just want the rifle to cycle properly and not have the bolt eat my locking pin or charging handle.
This s2k has maybe 3 thousand rounds through it but a lot of that has been light reloads that are a tad dirty IMHO .
I think I must have assembled the s2k without properly seating the locking pin and then fired several hundred rounds which caused damage to the pin and to the bolt itself. Maybe. Probably …
I’ll let ya know how the heavy bolt works out, but it " feels" good as far as the handle and pin being tight with the bolt.
