    Take a look at this one, I put quite a few of these on and they look nice and give you that extra reach.

    Pretty much all of the custom knob installations will extend the overall length of the handle.

    This guys does bolt modifications for a living, check it out:

    Chad is my go-to 'smith, he can do just about anything you need to a bolt:

    Contact Dan at www.accu-tig.com He'll give you some basic instructions to make a measurement with a feeler gage before you send him your bolt. Have him install a Holland Tac Handle. It is a tad longer (like you asked for) and hasn't the big knob like these thread on knobs do. It's shaped kinda' like a Rem handle, but longer. When you get it back, you'll not only have a nicer/better handle that's tig welded on (instead of silver soldered), and, the extraction timing will be correct. All in all, the cost including Priority Mail is about $85.. Money well spent! You've killed two birds with one stone,,,, a better handle and positive extraction. I've seen way too many of those big knobs, that are threaded on, be 'finger wackers' that hurt every time ya' squeeze one off.
