Recently received a Model 70 Featherweight BOSS in 22-250. Serial number puts it as 1977. The issue is the entire bolt is missing. I am an AR guy but recently have gotten into bolt actions. Was really caught off guard when I found out that Winchester had 3 different bolt types over the years. The conundrum is that no one can tell me what bolt type the rifle takes without the bolt. Thats my Catch-22. Looking for someone who could tell and show me what the difference between the bolts is but based on the action setup. I think the ejector on the CRF and CRPF is part of the action. If someone knows if this is true or any other way to identify the type of bolt I need, it would be greatly appreciated.
