Very nicely done. You probably meant to reverse steps 2 & 3 to be able to get the bolt out prior to stripping. Although gages with the cut outs, commercial type escapes me and military gages, the best way is as you have shown because if not inserted correctly can give false readings for the unschooled. Dissassembly of the bolt removes any possibility of error. You will get responses that say you only need the field gage or some combination but the best way is to check with all three as you have done. IMHO folks who don't have the money to get all three probably shouldn't be doing this activity. The average person who only has a couple rifles and doesn't engage in armorer activities on a routine basis are better off paying a modest fee for a qualified gun plumber to do the checks. Again IMHO. Liked the pix.
