Re: How to put a tactical bolt on a rem 700?

You really should send it out to get done. Here is a quick rundown on whats involved.
Cut bolt knob off. Drill out center of bilt handle and install hardened threaded insert to strengthen handle. Contour outside of handle and tap it for new bolt knob. Apply thread sealer and install bolt knob.
Honestly you should check out Short Action Customs, They do all types of bolt knob conversions for about $100.00. Mark does excelent work.

I offer the service of installing tactical bolt knobs on Remington bolts. Here is a few photos I took of how I install a knob.

Prior to turning knob down



Factory knob turned down to 5/16" diameter



Single point threaded



KMW Grenade style knob installed



Bolt in rifle




Here's a Badger Knob that I installed and polished




Here's another Badger knob that was left with the black anodized finish

Very impressive work. How much would it cost to put the rubber cone knob on my rem?

Re: How to put a tactical bolt on a rem 700?

The easiest way to put a tactical knob on a bolt is to send it to GA Precision in KC, MO. One word of caution when installing a large knob on a factory bolt is that they are too close to the trigger for someone with larger hands. I understand GA Precision will now install a complete bolt handle that is straight and not slanted back which is probably a better way to go. No idea what it cost, but it may be listed on their website.
