On the parts diagram for my Karh M1 there is something called the extended bolt handle. Is this a replacement fo the bold handle?

It would seem to make cocking the gun a bit easier if there is a longer bolt handle, right?

Specially for old arthritic little fingers....

Yes, it's a longer Handle...If you look through some of the older posts, forum member David J. sells new Recoil Springs along with a Buffer. Makes drawing the Bolt back MUCH easier.

I replaced the springs instead of the bolt handle - buy a set of springs you will not be sorry.
