Bolt Action Pens – Explained

Bolt Action Pens


Bolt Action Pens are one of the more popular styles with our customers, due to the action of operating the pen. There are other types of bolt action pens, of course, and here we explain the different types and their benefits.


The bolt action pens are a subset of clicker type pens. Normal clicker pens have a “clicker” at the top of the pen to advance and retract the refill. Bolt action pens extend the ink refill by the movement of a “bolt” in a downward direction and locking it in. Unlocking and moving the bolt up retracts the ink refill. There is no “clicking” sound unless the user pushes hard on the bolt. Click Here for our Bolt Action Pens.
