    My bolt knob has more of a cone profile than a teardrop like the Badger. It can be installed on any bolt handle that has a diameter larger than .330 above the knob. I have not put one on a Savage but I am sure it wouldn't be a problem.

    Anyone have a source for a 5/16" hollow mill to use for this install?

    You can mill it square and run the tap over the square stub to thread the corners, not as neat and professional as using the hollow mill, but it will hold.
    FWIW- I have a hollow mill. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Thats a coincidence, i emailed Chris a week of so ago as i was having trouble locating the right sized hollow mill here in Germany, he kindly offered to get me the right tool, the darn things are expensive though. So i figure on making up a tool to do the job. Up to know i've just milled the remmy knob down some and done the rest with a file, its easy enough to do for a one off, but when it comes to a few bolts then its a lot quicker to have the right tool. Personaly i realy like the Badger bolt knob, its the perfect size, ive made my own and installed them in the past, but to be honest, it isn't worth standing at a lathe making one off bolt knobs when i can buy em for what the badger knobs go for trade. The Badger knob will fit about anything, the only problem i have found is due to the size it happens to foul a NV scope i would like to mount on a certain pig rifle, For a savage i would just swap the bolt handle with one from sharpshooters supply, although the badger knob does look smart on a savage too.
