Ah, drop-free bolt mod...got it.  Just looked it up and, yes, that's what the problem bolt looks like, from what I can tell.  Interesting, sort of.  I'm glad the original bolt works just fine.  Thanks for the help!

Problem solve.

The other bolt is narrow on the bottom because its been modified for the drop-free bolt mod.

Yes, he had the original bolt and put the Murray’s bolt in the gun, probably because we had discussed it before the transaction.

The problematic bolt looked like it was polished up quite a bit.  In comparison, that bolt is narrower in spots than the original good bolt. 

The original bolt (that works) has stamped numbers that match the serial numbers on other parts of the firearm. I probably should have taken a better pic to show the numbers but it’s a Norinco with serial number 1611706.  Not sure if I answered your question, hopefully I did

This is an old type cover mount (cannot remember maker) that actually uses that rear knob to tighten down the slack in the cover when mounted.   I have seen them before but very rarely.  I doubt you will ever find the original parts that ar missing...... may have to find parts of a dif set of rings that will work.

So the previous owner still had the original bolt?   Looks like the one that had insufficient headspace had the drop-free bolt mod. 

Is the 'original' bolt you just got stamped with any of the serials digit sequence?

I use the Arsenal Inc. front sight tool, fits my SKS with room to spare.

I bought mine when I found out the front post on my WASR was stuck, I broke two cheap tools after letting the front post soak in penetrating oil for a week. The Arsenal got it out. It twisted the post til it was useless, but it came out.

Thank You ! Welcome to the Files : ) Do you remember where you got it ?

First, 'thanks' to everyone who used their own time to help me learn about my SKS and figure out the problem.  I learned a lot here and that pushed me to research more on my own.

This afternoon, I got the matching numbered bolt this afternoon.  For a few dollars and my troubles, I kept the other bolt that had gone thru Murray's.  It was a good deal.  The real shiny one on top is the Murray bolt



I then went straight to the range, slipped in the matching bolt, pulled the trigger and bang.  Nice but I've been here before.  Pulled the trigger and bang...bang again.  I felt cautiously good but, after three more shots, I'm zeroing on my target.  I wasn't at the range very long but shot 40 rounds and no problems.  It's zeroed close enough for government work, for now.   

Took the rifle home, cleaned it, gave it the lacquer build-up treatment and changed out firing pins.  The Murray pin feels good.  It lives!
