    Default I did it in front of my wife today...

    I bought a mosin rifle while she watched. Am I a bad person or is she a great wife? She did mention something about going shopping later this week. ...

    My wife tells me I can spend as much as I want on guns.
    .....as long as I spend at least the same amount on her!

    Or just get a bolt handle from Midway or Brownells,,there pretty nice and not badly priced, or if you have access to a lath , just make one. It only takes 20 minetes to whip one out and you can have it as fancy or plain, long or short,, as you want. I used to make all my Mauser bolt handles back in the day.

    I used a grade 8 bolt, bent it, cut the bolt handle off a spare bolt body, then cut the bolt knob off, drilled and tapped the bolt knob, screwed the knob to the new bolt handle with some locktite and mig welded it on to a spare bolt body. I also drilled a shallow hole in the bolt body "lug" to hold the handle in place while I welded it. Bolt bodies are inexpensive and readily available so that way you can save the original, if you even want to.

    stalker - it looks like you were finally able to get back in to the site.

    Did your wife let you buy a few spam cans of ammo too?
