Savage 93R17 - any new bolt handle options?



Log in to see fewer ads
I’ve read where some people have ground down theirs and threaded the factory knob, but I was trying not to have to do that. Is there any other option out there now? I would like something with a longer throw and different knob.

The Savage knob is a machined part of the bolt so there is no threaded replacement. Luckily it is easy to grind the knob and thread it, I think 1/4 x 20 is the standard center fire dimension which will provide unlimited options. I did this and love the results

There is cheap and there is over the top

I put a slip on BORK (big ol' rubber knob) on my T3 in 308, and it is the best $7 I have spent on a cheap gun hack. Not only easier to handle, but less likely to bruise or brutalize stuff.

I was under the impression that most threaded bolt knobs were 5/16x24, but I've been wrong before. There's some do it yourself info at sniper's hide

Went with a DIP savage knob and added the bottom metal and g series trigger guard. Much improved ergonomics and hated the plastic trigger guard. Went ahead and cleaned up the bolt and polished it as well. Runs smoothly now. A lot of work for a handle upgrade. Oh well all in good fun.
