In response to a question elsewhere:

They are removable. They are threaded with what appears to be a metric pitch.
All 3 variants I have here were blue loc-tited in.
The extra grip afforded by the O-rings on the chaser bolt handle allowed finger tip removal.
For guys like me with severe cases of "marrette thumb", no major problems.

The other 2 shorter rounded head smooth bolt handles required a tool- in my case, the toothless section of a multi-tool pliers on the shaft below the bolt knob did the trick.

It is possible to thread them back in far enough that the threaded end will abrade against the wall of the bolt channel. A thread locker of some type is highly recommended for those who want to swap bolt handles around....

Thanks, Im not familiar with the term, but guessing I don't have such a thumb as I was unable to unthread by fingers.
Will have to try again =)

Similar to what we are using, except the 333 is a different temperature range, and lacks the leverage wings.

It's like anything else- exercise thumb and forefinger enough through intensive repetition, and they become tool-like in what they can do.

I doubt I could get the Chaser bolt handle off without those O-rings that provide extra grip...

Always amazed me that nobody ever came up with a driver bit to twist them damn marrettes with a cordless drill (or did someone...?).
Hmm... million dollar idea!

We have one in nylon in 1/4" drive, but it does not get used.
I think the design was meant to go into a screw driver rather than a power tool.
It is easy to break #12 copper conductor with it ~ in either direction.

I have ordered in a .177 version of the 600 W. :mrgreen:

We shall see soon! Once I get the thread pitch and diameter nailed, me making an extended handle could become a real possibility.

I should have known what "marette fingers" are, having worked for my electrician uncle in my 20's. Guess I just never heard the term, lol. Looking forward to what you end up with as a handle =).
I've left this one easy to remove so you shouldn't need any super strength to get it out =).

I thought of cutting a slot with my Dremel on the ball end. This will allow the use of screw driver to tighten the bolt, but it will be ugly.

Right now I just use a pair of pliers with a piece of cloth for cushion and blue Loctite. So far so good, the bolt had not loosen yet.

They are indeed metric. They are 4mm .7
The shaft is undersized for the breech opening allowing unwanted horizontal play . It should 4.54mm which perfectly locks up in battery with no fore aft play. Feels smooth like my RJMachine breech which has crazy tight tolerances.
