Does anyone have any experience with EGW?

This seems like a great deal- Bolt threading and a know for $70

Some of the knobs are close to that alone...

That is a pretty decent deal if it includes the knob. EGW is a reputable company. For this type of work I dont think you have to worry about to much.

I have bought 2 of their rail mounts and would definately buy from them again

Try kendog4570 in Aptos, does this all the time.

Thanks 6mmintl.
I can't compete with their price, but my procedure is different and makes the bolt handle and bolt root much stronger. The factory handle is furnace brazed to the body and can be a weak spot. Adding a 40% longer bolt handle to the assembly increases the stress on this joint. I have actually had them peel off while threading, so I have developed another way of attaching the Badger type knobs. I cut the old knob off and fit a heat treated, double threaded stud to the handle that I fabricate, and secure with a threaded joint and high strength, permanent thread adhesive. I also fit a heat threated torx screw at the bolt handle root to add strength to the factory joint (exactly like Greg Tannel of Gre-Tan rifles does).
