Looking at the nice replacement bolt handles in the rimfire section I thought I would make one for my 10/22
Little bit of a complicated piece - better off to buy one, but fun litttle project.

If you paid yourself an hourly wage for projects like this you'd go broke.;D Looks good, how much bigger than the original is it?

Yeah - no kidding-its about 30% larger with a slightly longer extension-

Likely enough added weight to convert the gun to 17m2.

Maybe a little heavy- I was going to drill out the handle, but was thinking I wanted to try it the way it is first.
