Re: Tactical bolt knobs?


Easier to lift
more real estate to grab on to and work it with authority
no more scope finger bolt knob sandwiches
looks good on some rifles


larger profile (mine wont fit in a case without the bolt removed)
it catches alot of brush in the heavies
looks dorky on some rifles

For me, it all comes down to application. If im using the rifle as a comp gun, or just a target shooter, or if i need to make fast follow up shots, then the gun will wear one...my a-bolt deer killer does not wear one, cause it only takes one shot to do the trick, and I cant think of a reason to kill more than one deer at a time.

Re: Tactical bolt knobs?

For me, I thought about them too for hunting, but I only need
the 1st shot. I also thought practice enables us to know our
equipment enough that we don't need training wheels? LOL!
Sort of kidding there. I'm thinking if you know your rifle well
enough, after a while you get use to it. So if you are without a
tactical knob, it shouldn't be a deterrent for lack of chambering
additional rounds in a hurry if you practice with your gun.
Another issue is to make sure the larger knob doesn't cramp
your room for the scope when sliding back and forth.(most likely
thinking manufacturers already thought this out... or so you'd
hope. LOL!)
