Tactical bolt knob install for Weatherby
Does anyone know who installs tactical bolt knobs (EGW, Badger, etc) onto a Weatherby Vanguard (Howa 1500) bolt?
Mark Gordon of Short Action Customs
I also believe Frank Hargrove of Cactus Weapons Systems
works on these actions. Call or e-mail to confirm.

Badger Ordnance, EGW, and AZ Precision don't install bolt knobs on Howa actions. It looks like the problem is that the action is a very hard steel and tears up their tooling.
