    Thanks Bill. I have found a bolt for the Model 2 X and just wanted to try and find out if it will function in my X model. Thanks again.

    Hi All,
    I have just had the good fortune to have purchased an
    IVER JOHNSON MODEL X .22 RIMFIRE BOLT ACTION RIFLE. Serial #4886.
    Overall the rifle is in very good condition. The stock has been redone sometime in the past . But has no dents or cracks that I can notice.
    The metal is also in nice condition with a few specks of surface rust and some very slight pitting.
    Overall i am a very happy camper.
    One issue that I was aware of , and was brought to my attention by the seller was that the bolt/screw that keeps the trigger assembly attached to the receiver is slightly stripped.
    I think the screw would turn into the hole if I used a little force but i don't want to booger it up any further.
    Other then tapping the hole to accept a larger screw would there be any other way to fix this issue?
    Thanks in advance for any ideas and suggestions.
    I will post some pics shortly
    Tony

    Hi there.
    I recently came across one of these Model x rifles and am wondering if there are parts anywhere for them.
    It needs a new bolt,as the shells arent ejecting and the bolt has a long gouge on the bottom of it,no doubt from previous owners not pressing the trigger when taking the bolt out.
    other than that its in good cond.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Could i have the bolt welded and machined at all?
    Thanks

    You won't have much luck finding a bolt, best bet is to find one in horrible shape and use for parts. It's also hard to find the first stocks with the stauble on the forend.

    Welcome to the forum Bill H, but if you're addressing Bill Goforth, he sadly passed away last year, and there's no info in his book regarding the Model X's beyond what he listed in this thread.

    Bill Goforth is no longer with us.
    My father is no longer with us.
    My grandfather's Iver Johnson turned up missing in my father's estate.

    But we do have great collection of information thanks to the Bill's work.
    I now hove both his Iver Johnson books.
