Just picked up a Weatherby Vanguard Deluxe rifle. I have a question about the bolt handle. It seems to be covered in a 1/8 inch thick rubber/plastic coating. I can spin the rubber the whole way around, which means it isn't sealed. Am I supposed to remove it or is it supposed to stay on the bolt handle. I'm leaning towards removing it since they advertise that it is a knurled handle, which doesn't do any good with the covering over it.

Thanks for any help.

check to see if its chrome? you may want to leave it on as to not deal with the high vis. i took mine iff and it shows up @ 10 miles away!

Is your rifle blue or stainless?

It's just a protective coating, so take it off or leave it, your choice.

Yeah, I took it off...I was worried it wouldn't be finished underneath, but it looks good.

I do believe its simply put there so the goober clerks don't bang the shit out of other rifles taking them in and out of display racks.
