Lithgow LA101 bolt handle knob



Log in to see fewer ads
Wanting to do just a little 'something' to the new Lithgow LA 101 as a 'alleged' upgrade, I decided to focus on the bolt knob.
The factory knob is a handy pear shaped item. It feels good to hand, and compliments the overall aesthetic of the rifle.

Searching around I found Lumley Arms purveyor of 4 items Lithgow and items for Tikka and Remington.
I did order the steel bolt knob, trigger spring, and bolt knob thread adapter.

I have a bit of a dilemma as I fancy the Lumley bolt handle knob and the aftermarket 5/16x24 threaded Rem/Savage aimed knurled grip knob. Decisions decisions.....

Photo #1 shows the black pear shaped Lumley knob. 2mm wider and longer than the original. Feels great in hand and lends itself perfectly to curled finger bolt manipulation.

Photo #2 shows the Lumley knob placed

Photo #3 shows the Lumley adapter threat piece on the Lithgow: internal thread are M6x1.0 to fit the factor handle, external thread 5/16x24 to fit most aftermarket bolt knobs.

Photo #4 shows medium strength blue Loctite 242 on the external thread only to secure the aluminum knurled 5/16x24 aftermarket handle knob.

Photo #5 shows the aftermarket aluminum knurled grip knob in place.

I like both......a lot! Will let a bit of time go by before deciding which to stay in place.
I plan to use just a drop of 222 Loctite to hold it in place with the bolt handle.

The M6x1.0 threaded bolt handle without the threaded Lumley adapter.
The original knob came off very easy with a little heat from a heat gun, a leather palm glove wrapped around the knob and some channel locks.
Came off easily, no scarring to the knob, and the treads cleaned up real fine with just a towel, no solvents.

Any CZ455 knob works, too. I used on from Area 419.

Did you do the Lumey spring kit upgrade? That made a big difference IMO.
