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.

If the rifle was manufactured in the year 1977, it is too late for it to be a CRF, and too early for it to be a CRPF. It should be a PF bolt.
