    what bolt knob have you got on your 590/595

    Hi lads

    who out there has a 590/595 with a modded bolt knob.

    i have one on mine and just can not for the life of me get on with it, its just a tad to big for my liking and sticks out a tad far.

    Attachment 45602



    so looking for something/an idea what to get done to mine.

    thanks

    bob.

    LOL

    very true big fella, I think that I will have to have this changed as i don't like it 'sticking out ' but not sure what to go for as a replacement, maybe just a ball on the end just to try and keep it from getting in my way when out on the ground.

    Unscrew your bolt knob & get someone to turn it on a lathe - It looks like there is plenty of meat on the plastic lump to allow you to make it quite a bit shorter. - A lot cheaper than replacing the lever.
    I'm sure your mate Neil Mc** would do it for you.

    I kept the standard knob and simply slipped one of those rubber ball things over it: it's grippy, silent, and not too sticky-outy.

    I getting a bit sick of the large tactical type bolt knobs and started making some smaller ones. This one felt just right on a T3 lite.
