The Sharps Xtreme Performance Bolt (XPB) in DLC (diamond Like Carbon), is our patented Relia-Bolt™ finished in DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating.
The redesigned lugs of the Relia-Bolt™ virtually eliminate the most common MSR malfunction; the bolt to barrel extension jam. Haven’t cleaned your rifle? Is it out of time? The Relia-Bolt™ compensates by providing a patented camming action which guides the bolt past obstructions and into battery. (U.S. Patent No. 9,863,729) The rounded/tapered lugs push past carbon and debris when the square edges of traditional bolts would typically jam. Once into battery, the rear edges of the lugs fully engage the barrel extension for absolute strength and security.
Unmatched Strength and Durability
The Relia-Bolt™ is machined from S7 tool steel and tempered with SRC’s proprietary heat-treating process, significantly increasing strength when compared to MilSpec Carpenter 158. S7 provides a 75% increase in tensile strength, and nearly 60% improvement in yield strength.
We offer a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee on our complete line of Sharps bolt and bolt carrier products.
Limited Lifetime Warranty
If any Relia-Bolt™ is found to have defects in materials or workmanship, SRC will repair or replace it at no charge.
