Late Winchester Bolt Step

Winchester Bolts

Winchester Bolts

Early and mid production Winchester bolts were flat on the top of the lug.  The early bolts don't have the "drain" hole on the inside bottom center.  The later Winchester bolts had a "step" added to the lug that goes into the op rod.  This is something that Springfield had been doing for years.
