All Bench Rest Rifle Associations require removal of the bolt from all rifles before the shooter leaves the bench. Dropping one of these bolts on a dusty surface is nothing short of a calamity. The problem of bolt safety was referred to Protektor Model and we came through with the sheath pictured here. Will fit all bolts in normal use today. With belt loop, your bolt is secure. Can hold some Mag Lites flashlights.
