    So I decided that I don't like the factory bolt handle on my 110.I didn't want to buy one so I made one myself.Ground the bolt knob down until it was just small enough to slip a 30 cal.shell case over it.
    After drilling out the flash hole,I heated the bolt handle,quickly slid the case over it and filled the case with solder.its pretty rough right now,I'll smooth up the edges after a good strength test.seems pretty solid though.
