Yep, I realized I need to do something with all my bolts as well. they always seem to catch the sling of the rifle next them when leaving the safe, gets really annoying.

Turns out, the rifle fit alot better if I remove the bolts.

WTF should I do w/them if they aren't in the rifle? Does anyone make some device to hold/store/organize rifle bolts?



I use a fabric tool roll. Like the ones wrenches come in from Proto......NH Northern usually has them for like $10.....

Have you thought about standing rifles muzzle end down? That way the bolts dont contact.

That's exactly what I do, in order to keep the bore evenly lubed, and the bolt and butt relatively dry, without lube flowing down out of the bore. Otherwise, esp. with old Mosin-Nagants, I get the tendency for the upper bore to dry out and rust- not good.....
