    I have had LPR install bolt knobs in the past but I can't get a response from them. Who do y'all recommend? I can send them to Badger but I an curious to know if there is someone else doing them.

    Thanks for your response.

    Nate at SSG does good work and is a sponsor here.
    I know he makes knobs so he probably installs them too.

    Straight Shot Gunsmithing

    I have also heard good reviews from this company:

    Phoenix Custom Rifle usually runs a special in their knobs and installs:

    They do some fine work.

    mtp29464,

    Just about every gunsmith involved with 'tactical' rifles will do a good job on your bolt but one of the most experienced is still GA Precision.

    From their website:

    Badger Ordnance Tactical Bolt Knob - installed, Remington 700 [Hide Details] $95 Oversize bolt knob allows fast, easy access to bolt even with gloved hands. No more holding the bolt handle with two fingers to pass the scope bell. The extra size and length gives unparalleled control of the bolt during cycling. Provides extra leverage for stuck rounds. 7075 T6 Aluminum alloy to keep the weight down and a Mil-spec Hardcoat anodized finish to last a lifetime.

    Check out Ebay. I have been looking for a SA Remmy magnum bolt and when I search eBay, I get a ton of bolt knob installers. Most are around $50.

    There are a variety of knobs out there. I even saw some that were spiral fluted and otherwise ornamentally decrative.
