Sportsman Model 48 12 gauge Bolt

Post by KS25-06 »

Lady brought me her dad's gun and wants it fixed. Missing the complete bolt It appears to be like an 11-48. Will a bolt for an 11-48 work in this gun?

The 48 is an 11-48 with a dimpled magazine to hold only two shells. It was designed as a three shot only specifically for bird and duck shooting. The bolts should be identical.

BUT, I have heard that there were several 11-48 bolts so wiser heads are needed to get the best answer. The difference IIRC is whether or not the bolt has feet that ride in channels.
