The first time I've ever seen an SI wire stock come up. I need it like a hole in the head, but it's very tempting.

What makes the Howdy bolt better than, say, a Lapco or Taso adjustable bolt?

I couldn't tell you cept to say it was adjustable (on field) when others were not.

Jim "Howdy" McGuire of the Master Blasters made the Howdy Bolt in the late 80's before Lapco came out with thiers, at the time it was the only adjustable, non kink bolt for a Bushmaster. They cost $100.00 at the time.
Jim gave me one in 89 to try out in my pointman, I still owe him for the bolt.
We called them Mac Bolts back then.

How was it field adjustable? With a rod down the barrel?

You adjusted the bolt like a Carter with a hex rod down the barrel.
Although it was not polite to carry your adjustment tool during a game.

If I layed a "Howdy Bolt" beside a Lapco bolt you would see little or no diffrence. Being able to adjust a Bushmaster without taking the marker apart was a big thing at the time.
What made Jim bolt important at the time was that it was the first nonkink adjustable bolt.

Ross used an adjustable hammer in his Bushmaster as not to be copying any one else parts.

I have a Bushmaster that I am having problems with. Every time I pull the pump handle all the way forward, it fires, is there an adjustment I have to make?

Thanks.

My Duck was doing the same thing. It was a Sear/ Trigger issue.
