    Second bolt action pen.

    Second attempt at a bolt action. This time I cut the Indian Rosewood, drilled it, glued in the barrel and then used my new barrel trimmer. So.much easier.

    Nicely turned and finished.

    I have found that the Gold plating wears very quickly with continued use compared to most of the other available platings.

    Ever considered re-orientating the Bolt handle so the pens Bolt Action works like a real right handed bolt Action rifle?
    Very easy to do.

    I have thought about it. Even tried it before assembling the pen but thought this way was more comfortable. I maybe do it in future.

    That's another lovely, well turned pen Daniel, well done. I'm not a lover of hands in photographs, but that's just me.
    Kind regards John.
