I put one of these on my slp a few months ago. I was wondering with enough force, you can yank out the bolt handle. Does this happen to anyone else?

I put a Nordic components bolt handle on my SLP and I haven't had any issues with it falling off. I can remove but only when cleaning my SLP. Definitely nicer than the stock handle that the SLP comes with by default.

Yep the bokt handle hads to come off to break gun down for cleaning. Designed that way. I also have the Nordic bokt-- functions great-- pulls out w same forces as any other

I took out the slp yesterday and the nordic bolt got tossed off somewhere in the grass. Is there something I can do so it won't fall out?

Not sure everything is correct with this-- it should pull out with effort, but not fly out with cycling. Is the bolt damaged? Try to inspect it versus another.

The Nordic bolt handle is a good addition to an SLP. Makes it easier to cycle the action while the gun is on your shoulder.

Like yours, mine had the annoying habit of popping off after 15 or 20 shots. One thread I read about this problem advised to paint the handle bright orange so you could find it in the grass a little easier. That would help, but I like the way my SLP looks in solid black.

I just used a file to the deepen the notch (detent) on the handle stem a little, and made sure it was slightly rough. Now it says in place just fine, and yet I can still yank it out when it is time to remove the bolt.

Kitchen table top gunsmithing that anyone can do.

Lol my father says in Armenian my hands don't hold tools. They sent me a new one I disassembled the bolt pushed it all the way in. I haven't tried it out yet well see.
