Abstract : A bolt assembly on a rim fire adapter to permit a rifle to use smaller ammunition wherein an improvement is made to require cocking of the rifle hammer before the bolt can chamber another round and thus avoid the safety hazard of double firing. A bolt extension block having a pivotal extension and extended hammer cocking surface is added to the rear of the bolt to achieve hammer cocking with less bolt recoil travel to insure that doubling or double firing will not occur.
