Are you referring to the bolt handle?

Brownells or midway USA to name a couple. Not to mention browning.

Bolt handle would be the part your looking. Should just go right into the hole on your guns bolt. A google search will turn up a few options.
Here's a diagram of a bolt assembly to make sure that's what your missing.

Sounds to me like he's talking about the bolt release button.

The bolt handle on the gun simply slides in and out, it is retained by a detent on the top of the actual handle itself and a spring loaded ball inside the the actual bolt keeps pressure on the handle when installed.

People refer to it as the bolt because it is the bolt.

My SX3 was slinging bolt cocking levers. Winchester gunsmith had to drill/ream the hole in the bolt to fix the problem. He told me that this was a common issue with early model SX's perhaps also with the Maxus as well
