It was identified as a MKIII on the plastic envelope it came in.
Whatever, it works just fine. Range time yesterday and 100 flawless rounds.


If it is a Mark III, there will be an LCI cut along the left, front end of the bolt. Good to read all is now well.

Weird day at the range. During recoil the "ears" part of the bolt on my MKII simply dropped off.

Let me guess - stainless steel?

Yes stainless. KMK 514 from 1991-92 with somewhere between 30,000 & 40,000 rounds. The broken extractor came at around 25,000. Accuracy still as good as when it was new.

Update
Broken bolt received by Ruger on Thursday May 29th in the afternoon. New bolt assembly received by me on Monday June 3rd in the noon mail delivery. I have already installed it and it fits and cycles just fine.
My only cost was postage to send them the broken bolt.

Sent Ruger an email thanking them for another example of GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE.


Glad to read you were taken care of very well. From what I understand Ruger is sending Mark IV bolts as replacements, nothing wrong with that, but the ear diameter is a bit smaller than the Mark II bolts. Most likely why many are attaching "bolt assists" on the newer bolts.
