And we're at deer camp...
My buddy gave me his 110 to check out saying his bolt wasn't closing. I opened it and the whole bolt handle spun around the bolt.

Is it out of commission or do I have to lend him my '70?

Did your buddy reassemble his bolt correctly?

I don't know that he ever disassembled it.
I posted on general firearms discussion also because it was time sensitive and someone answered...tighten the screw.
Thanks!

This is what I thought as well.

Sounds like your buddy needs to read the instruction manual and do a once over on anything before heading out into the woods.

Glad you found your answer, good hunting!

Check that the screw on the back of the bolt didn't come loose. Here is a slideshow that walks you through disassembling the savage bolts to get an idea how they go together.
