The Volquartsen Extended Bolt Handle for the 10/22 features the same shape and design as the bolt handle featured on our fully machined bolts. This handle has also been extended 0.25″ for faster, easier operation. The included recoil rod is polished, hardened and coated with a proprietary finish. This finish is not only extremely hard, but also contains lubricating features to create an extremely smooth operating guide rod. This coated recoil rod reduces friction which improves both feeding and ejecting. A recoil rod spring is also included. This spring has been cryogenically treated to withstand years of use.
