The realistic bolt-action handle smoothly advances and retracts to lock the refill in place. A bolt action rifle clip, a replica 30 caliber cartridge and rose gold bullet tip, and a replica rose gold bullet primer cap on the pen end adds authenticity. The pen is approximately 5 1/4" long and 1/2" wide (sizes vary because of the handcrafting process) and comes with a black Parker ink cartridge. The pictured pen (#582) is the pen you will receive. The pen is shipped in a felt pouch usually within 24 hours of order.
