With a barrel modeled after a 30 caliber cartridge and its miniature rifle clip, this pen will make a fine gift for any gun or hunting enthusiast. Add to that the fun factor of its bolt-action mechanism and you'll have a writing instrument that's tough to set down. The 30 Caliber Bolt-Action Pen Kit's precision components ensure that the refill advances and retracts smoothly, while promising excellent reliability. Pen blank not included.

Are these real and can they shoot a round?
I saw one that could in the 1960s my dad got one from the Chief of police. We never fired it but it had a tear gas round that went with it .32 caliber.
brad s on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi brad it is a nice looking pen but there is no way to fire it as a bullet.
I bought "Bushings for Bolt-Action Pen Kits Item #: 53451" to use with 30 Caliber Bolt-Action Pen Hardware Kit, Gun Metal Item #: 50694. The bushings are too large and do not fit in the brass tube of the pen kit; even though it is listed as the bushings for the kit. I measured the bushings and they are larger than the sizes on the pen kit instructions. What will fit?

BEST ANSWER: I purchased the bushings for this pen and they worked fine. Perhaps Rockler furnished you with the bushings for the Magnum pen kit. I have not turned that kit but suspect the bushings may be larger. Ask Rockler to send you the bushings specified for the kit which you have ordered. They may have made a mistake with your original order
Tried these pens before but aren't much good for us lefties. Is there a kit for lefties?
Jordan C on Dec 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Before you assemble you can switch the actual clip to the other side for lefties. Look inside top portion for screw. The instructions explain it probably better than I am. We love these pens.
Do you have to build it or does it come built?
Mgwild on Dec 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you want the pen to be built order it from me but this kit comes with the parts and the assembly is up to you. You will also have to turn a blank (the wooden part of the pen as seen in the photo) because the kit only has the metal parts. I hope this has answered your question. Remember if you don't have the bushings for this pen you will need to purchase them as well.
