Does anyone have a recommendation of a gunsmith to install a bolt knob for me on a Remington short action. I just can't find a gunsmith here in the swamp! Thanks, Baker

If you have a bench grinder and tap/die set it's not that hard to do. I've done both my 700's, took me about an hour each. I'll see if I can find the pics....

Send your bolt to Kampfeld Custom. You won't regret it.

Spend the money on that equipment instead of paying someone to do it. wink

I did the same thing on my one Rem 700 action.

Found a place, Thanks for all the help! Sending it out this morning

A guy that works with Kampfeld. Eddie Fosnaugh. Karl actually fluted the bolt for me and I shoud have added the knob then.

For all Remington 700 people, this always seems like a great alternative for cost savings. I'm a huge cheap a$$ so I live stuff like this.

His place is literly less than 15 minutes from my home but I've called his number several times and never got an answer so I just gave up trying!

Yeah me neither. And whats funny is....I actually own a KRG Whiskey 3 chassis and still wont put their "bolt knob" on my rifle!!

I'm probably going to go with LRI and the snipers hide group buy. $45 to have bolt knob installed.
