The least expensive and very effective method to store your Rifle Bolt is to use a clean white old athletic sock.
See my homemade video and instructions below.
Storing your Rifle Bolt:
I have found that one of the best methods is to use a man's old white athletic sock.
Follow these simple guidelines:
1) Make sure the Sock is White, the color in a sock can cause damage to the bolt.
2) Make sure the White Sock is washed and cleaned. Sweat from a dirty sock could cause rust.
3) Make sure the sock is big enough to completely hold the rifle bolt.
4) Remove the Rifle Bolt from the firearm.
5) Place the bolt in the clean sock.
6) Place the rifle in the gun case and the bolt next to the rifle, close the case.
This method is very good for Hunting ad Military Rifles especially when using a soft rifle case. Often times the rifle bolt causes a bulge in the soft style rifle case, or prevents a hard case from closing because the rifle bolt handle sticks up in the air.
When storing firearms, some people like to keep the rifle bolts stored separately from the firearms in the event of theft. A rifle isn't much good without the bolt. I know someone who stores their firearms in a Gun Safe and all their rifle bolts in a small floor safe in another part of the house.
