Not to derail the thread, but what's up with the comments about the NPM N14 marked bolt? Thanks

There seems to have been a metallurgical problem with that lot of bolts from NPM. They tend to crack/break at the lugs at higher rates than other bolts.

Thank you for your reply. That's kind of what I figured, a problem with the metal.

That's for sure, the carbine as a whole is well worn, finish wise, but the ME, bore and headspace are really good. I did switch out bolts when I fired it, did not want to be the last one to test the N14 bolt.

The only other NPM bolts I've seen were marked N11, are those or the UN marked bolts a better metallurgy?

I have only heard of the potential problem with the N14 bolts.
