I am hoping someone can steer me in the correct direction. I recently acquired a very nice 63 at auction (very few rounds through it). Upon inspection the very edge of the chamber appeared ‘nicked’ and would not chamber a round. No problem cleaned up the chamber only to discover that the firing pin was broken hmmmmm. After measuring I have realized that the bolt is most likely from a 1903 22WRM. Some how some where, somebody put the wrong bolt in this gun. So here is my dilemma- I can find all kinds of 03 bolts but not a 63 to be had. Any one with info on who may have a bolt would be appreciated. Yes I have tried all of the usuals, Numrich, Liberty tree, homestead - no one seems to have these. Thank You!
