I've been using the itty-bitty bolt knobs for so long, they feel natural to me.
Here's a close-up pic of the bolt knob compared to the "over-sized" knob on Savage's .22 (Mk II FV-SR).
Wow. That thing is huge. I may have to rethink about getting the model with that huge bolt handle. Thanks for the photo. Worth 1,000 words.
