Thread: Rubber Bolt Knob.

  1. #1

    Rubber Bolt Knob.

    Really taken with the idea of one of theese(http://www.webshop.roedale.de/produc...ml&language=en)

    Anyone know where to get one in the UK? Or how to get one dtraight from roedale, there system is beyond me!

    I hear they are very popular in Sweden. If any kind Scandinavian resident fancied buying and posting one to me as a gift I would be more than happy to pay!


    Thanks

    Sam

    , always makes me laugh out loud when something is touted as "Tactical", spose it might come in handy if I'd neglected to wash hands after greasing the Landrover!

    these things are great

    I brought one back from Sweden years ago, then sold it on with a rifle.

    I haven't been able to find them over here.

    sounds a good idea!

    just been on website and registered as a buyer........it works out at 35 euros to get one and have it shipped over!....a wee bit expensive for a bit of rubber?

    what do you guys think.

    While I can understand the use of such materials in very gold weather. We simply don't get that kind of weather here. Now have you honestly ever heard of someone freezing to the steel bolt knob/handle of their rifles in the UK?

    The very cold is why bolt knobs and trigger guards were made of horn on quality rifles.

    I have also heard some not too pleasent things about Roedale and as a result I would think very seriously before buying anything from them.

    Once bitten, twice shy

    I'll stay clear then.

    When battering away at hinds, it fairly lets you grab the bolt handle quickly!!

    Bit pricey for what it is though

    Each to their own as they say, I prefer the super slick bit that has no bluing left on it, hard to imagine anything smoother & easier to articulate.

    Anyone who spends 25quid on a black rubber ball is being shafted. You might aswell bend over and put it in your mouth
