    700 vtr bolt knob

    Is the VTR trianglar bolt knob replaceable? I prefer ball shape.

    They are but not easily. You need a good gunsmith or a machinest to do it right. You might look into an aftermarket bolt with a better extractor as well as the bolt handle you want.

    You can also get a bolt handle and have a gunsmith replace the existing handle. Its either silver soldered or brazed to the bolt. If you get a new bolt it will need to be checked for headspace. Probably the best source is PTG. They sell a Remington replacement bolt. I’ve heard that they are the most likely to headspace correctly but I don’t have personal experience.
