Default bolt ID help needed for 1903

I am looking at a swept handle bolt with a 7 on top of the handle and one other mark I can't make out on top. The underside has two punch marks and a K or possible M on it. Bolt is on an RI 425xxx receiver with an SA 8-28 barrel. Any info on this bolt and whether it is correct would be appreciated. Rifle also has a very large SADAL cartouche on the stock. http://s1167.photobucket.com/user/bo.../bolt%20photos

The "other mark" may be a number. Bolts were produced in the early 20s with the 7 serving as an "L".

Possibly a picture?

Its a "WL3" bolt. Look it up on the vishooter site. Even mentions the "K". Original to your rifle, I'd say.

The bolt is in the Family of "L" bolts,which preceded the "WL3" bolts
of the 1920s.The dead give away is the "W" on the bottom.

The bolt is a WL 5 bolt. Follow the link and read note 4:
