When people move bolt handles on Remington's how do you get past the unsightly gap between the back of the handle and the shroud?

I've found that the bolt handle goes forward normally to increase primary coming but the gap between the shroud and handle gets larger which looks untidy

So what solutions do you have?

Some hack would really have to get carried away turning lugs and abutments to get that far out of whack. So how to recover? Once the bolt handle is reinstalled the back of the bolt is trimmed off and the notch recut. Then the firing pin protrusion will need checked and corrected if needed. This will restore the fit and function.

With timing a bolt you have multiple functions going on some simultaneously, Battery timing, Primary Extraction timing, Bolt race/Cocking piece/Tang timing, and you have Cocking Piece/Sear timing. If you go to moving the cocking piece forward you may/will have to deal with Cocking Piece/Sear timing.
