I just purchased a BM59 made by Springfield Armory and i was looking at bolt and it appears to not be marked BM59 and does not have extra relief cuts i have seen in pics on this site.
I am not original owner. I was wondering if unmodified Garand bolt will work. Previous owner appears to have fired weapon and did not mention replacing bolt.
My question is is the weapon safe to fire. It is SA bolt and it clears mags it looks like it just rubs a bit on mag lips.
Also does anyone have a true BM 59 bolt for sale? with relief cuts or it it hard to have one cut? i purchased a BM made garand bolt extra
Thank you for any info
