MCR Bolt Knob Instal Pics

A customer of mine asked if I would take some photos of how I installed his bolt knob. Since I was this far I figured I'd share with everyone my set up for installing bolt knobs on Remington bolt handles.

This is the fixture I built to hold and align the bolt handle. I then turn the knob down to size.




Then I set up and single point thread.




And this is the custom knob I built for him. A little longer than normal but it's what he wanted.

Is that a self closing bolt? Looks like you could just push the bolt in and it would close all by it self. What does that knob weigh?
All kidding aside I LIKE IT.

Dam you Kevin why do you do this stuff to me when you have my rifle sitting in your shop? Now I will spend the whole week thinking about this. Outstanding work!
