Nice machine less diy. If there is any fore aft wiggle room while it is in locked position a short piece of electrical heat shrink tubing will make it snug as there is about 4.7mm of width in the breech vs the 4ish mm bolt diameter.
Hi Walther,

I did buy some 4.5mm od, 4mm id stainless tubing for the purpose of eliminating slack, but chose the cleaner look instead.

When I take a shot, the handle jumps a little, but the gun seems to shoot well.

Without a lathe, one has to compromise.

The stock stub handle has a slightly larger diameter shaft than the threaded portion, so it locks in the bolt shaft. When tightening this one tends go deeper and sometimes jam the bolt in the housing. Therefore, some blue threadlock is recommended.

Thanks,

Tom

Hi Tom

That is a pretty nice work around for replacing the stub style handles. Looks like you are just clearing the edge of the stock there...

which got me to thinking about the Mannlicher spoon handle flush style. Probably not enough beef in the bolt shaft for something like that, but it sure would be nice on a Hunting/Field rifle....

Hi Doc,

I have small hands and only do target shooting on a bench rest. Therefore the easy to handle cylinderical bolt is preferred over something much bigger.

4mm shaft with 8mm bolt handle knob seems to feel the best to me. Something bigger or longer just seem to be out of place for my usage.

Thanks,

Tom

I would think sleeving the whole threaded shaft would look just as nice, the handle jumping willbe costing you a little energy loss. Some people have found putting a piece of tissue by the breech bolt area gets blown off when firing(ie a small leak)
