MG3 Bolt Head?

Postby Waffentag » Thu May 19, 2016 10:00 pm

I was looking at RTG guns and I noticed that you could get a yugo bolt for $90, yet the MG3 bolt heads are $220.

I will be shooting mostly 308. Is there any advantage that justifies the prices the MG3 bolt head?

Simply stated:

Nope, they're the same except for manufacturer, and technically the steel is probably better, but the Yugo bolt will work just fine.

In addition the MG3 bolt head will take a different extractor retainer that won't work with the M53 bolt head. If you already have spares for the M53 bolts you're better off with them.
