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. Sheath is approx. 6"L x 1"W Will fit most smaller sized bolts in normal use today. With belt loop, your bolt is secure.
