New FGs arrived and found this bolt
 
Appears to be a very early bolt. No hole on the bottom.

FWIW I got 4 FG rifles and 3 were fair. Kinda rougher than I'm used to on FG and I order them on purpose. All GI stocks. One of them however, I cannot understand how it was not scrapped or used on that statue outside.

Nice Gas Trap Bolt. Worth a look inside to see if it still has it's round firing pin. Not likely but it's happened.

Ooh good idea I strangely didnt even think of that.

Cool find!

What happened to your other thread on the FG's? I was hoping to see pics.

FWIW I remember a few years back there was a gas trap bolt for auction on Ebay with the round pin. I think it went for around $250

I think its prior to that because it doesn't have the -1.
