A fully CNC machined and EDM wire cut bolt handle for Savage Centerfire models. Made from the best grade 5 titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V) - no other rifle benefits more in weight savings by replacing the original handle. The oversized cast steel options from Savage are excessively heavy. Our Titanium 'standard' version combined with our oversized carbon fiber knob has an average weight of 1.4oz (40g), which is over 70% lighter than the factory handles at 4.2oz (120g) - without making any compromises on strength, finish or quality. We start with only the best quality grade 5 titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V) and CNC machine the unit to tight tolerances to fit the factory savage bolt. Available in two options, either as-machined (silver/grey color) or with a tough DLC black coating (gloss black). We are producing carbon fiber knobs, titanium alloy knobs and hard-anodized alloy knobs (from high grade 7075-T76). If you want to use a different knob from elsewhere, the threads of the handle are 5/16"x24 TPI and the threaded length to the shoulder 0.5" (12.7mm).
Some fitting may be required
With so many models and sub models of different vintages including more recently available aftermarket bolt-bodies, we have found that the dimensions between individual Savage rifles can vary. All our Savage handles are machined as a 'tight fit' only as indicated by the last diagram in the photo gallery. Some modification to these dimensions may be required when fitting depending on the tab measurements of your rifle's bolt body. To determine whether your bolt will fit our handle without modification, measure the two tabs at the end of your bolt body marked by the arrows in this photo using vernier calipers. Anything equal to or below 0.244" (6.20mm) will fit. If it is over, the handle needs to be slightly enlarged (hand filing) to fit.
The handles are secured to the rear of the bolt body by a Bolt Attachment Screw ('BAS') - fixed using a 1/4" hex head. Firmly secure your bolt in a well-padded vise. The existing handle can be removed from the bolt body by turning this screw counter-clockwise. Once removed, the titanium handle will slot into place. If your bolt body dimensions are larger than usual, some trimming of our collar will be required (as detailed above) - a small fine file is best for this purpose. Apply a small amount of quality bolt grease to any surface modified along with the threads before reassembly.
