I just got a Vanguard Varmint Special in .22-250 and I was wanting to upgrade the bolt handle with an oversize one from Tactical Rifles or Surgeon Rifles. . .are our bolt handles compatible with the Remington 700's???  The only bolt handles that I have seen are for Rem 700, WIn. 70, or  Savage. . .

Thanks!!!-Weatherby Vanguard Varmint Special--22-250 Remington

-Remington 870 Synthetic--20 ga. camo

You'd have to contact the manufacturer of the bolt handle to see if they make a model 'pre-fit' for the Vanguard/Howa action.  If they don't, a good gunsmith can make you one, if he's willing to do the work.  There are some great smiths out there who will one-off something like that if you want it.  And if you're willing to pay for it.  Another alternative is to have the existing handle bell cut off and the shank threaded for a knob you like.I believe this is a practical world, and in it I can count only on what I can earn.  Therefore I believe in work, hard work. - The Auburn Creed
