Anyone used one? I have 5 of them just sitting on the shelf. Do you just drill of the peened over end of the bolt handle then tap it to 8 X 32 or 10 X 32? I suppose you could turn the nose down also to let more air in behind the pellet?

Thanks guys!

I've seen people slice off the tip of the bolt probe (careful to leave enough metal to retain the o-ring) and drill a thinner and longer rod to replace it.

that's what I have seen done, aside from that they sit in a parts bin for me at least.

Thanks guys! I think I will take the 5 factory ones I have and make custom bolt handles and sell them on eBay, or if I ever get my own damn site up and running!
