View Full Version : para bolt next to standard bolt

July 21, 2007, 23:00
i was wondering if someone could help
im looking for pictures of a metric next to a para [ all angles ]
plus dimension of the differences in the two bolts
as in the recoil spring hole in the rear of the para
width , if theres a height , and depth

the main reason would be to alter a standard to a para

The bolts are the same - very different carriers, however. The Para bolt carrier is considerably taller to allow for the spring.

sorry for that
i keep getting them mixed

it would be for the carrier and not the bolt

thanks again

Unless you just want to, there is no reason to do it. The conversion of a standard metric carrier to a para is a major drag and with high quality commercial para bolt carriers available, it is wasted effort. I have a full machine shop available to me. I made a conversion like you are contemplating. I would eat raw frog guts before I would do it again.
