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

BM59 bolts are available but not cheap. Try Standard Parts about a month ago they were listing them on ebay.

Thank you for the reply. I found standard before when searching for BM59 parts and have been watching their website for bolts.
 
BTW I would like to say Hello to everyone at this website i am new to BM 59 world and trying to learn as much as possible and found this site.
Hope to learn much more and go shoot the BM59 soon :)

Suggest you send an e-mail to standard parts.  Greg can probably locate a bolt for you.

Go over to Tim Shufflin's "Battle Tested" forums. You might try checking Northride Parts or The Garand Guy also.

Just re-read my post - it should read "Northridge".

I checked their site, not showing any and neither was Sarco.

You will need the head space checked. Make sure to use 7.62 Nato gauges. Do not use .308 gauges as there is a difference.
