So..... my question is.... is that normal breakage? From the looks of the break it wasn't like that for some time as there is no discoloration like I would expect from a crack that was cracked and then broke later. The bolt and blish lock are both marked Savage but the actuator is not marked as far as I can see. The gun was built in 1982. Is this one of those cases where one of those dreaded "west hurley" parts just failed? Is this a normal failure after XX rounds? Inspection shows no other damage to the weapon from the failure.
FWIW, my West Hurley has always run great and It hasn't even been to PK yet! LOL! Parts falling out of the gun however are definately cause for concern so I thought I'd throw this post out there and see what you guys think.
Lastly... Anyone know where I can buy a new actuator? Been thinking about buying one of the Ohio Ordnance kits but at this point all I need is a new actuator. Thoughts?
Any and all input appreciated.

Anybody need a complete set of unused WH internals left over from my WH M1's trip to PK?
