This Bolt Action style pen works just like a real gun. Use the bolt at the end of the pen to smoothly extend and lock the refill into place through a .30 caliber bullet casing. Each detail, from the one of a kind bolt action mechanism to the precision engineered components, was carefully designed to ensure uniqueness and reliability.
The wood barrel is made from a piece of highly turned, beautifully figured wood, hand turned and polished to a high gloss with a high end friction polish to beautify the wood. This finish gives a more natural wood look and feel.

This pen is made by David Martindale who is an Oregon born local artist. He uses the profits from his pens to help fund his mission trips to Kenya. He has been to Kenya three times and works with two orphanages. The sales from his pens has helped him fund materials and tools to build benches for their schools, bunk beds for 220 children, mattresses, sheets, blankets, and pillows. The dream of getting the children from sleeping on the floors to sleeping in beds is becoming a reality. This year he is using the funds to bring a children’s choir of 18 children to the US to perform and tell their stories of how the orphanage has changed their lives.
