Im trying to put a bolt together and it looks like the rear of the fireing pin doesnt fit into the locking lugs of the cocking piece I have.

The cocking piece is from a 96 and the rest of the bolt is a 93/95.

It seems like the lug pattern its just barely off, anyone know if i can make it work with the rest of the bolt or have a spec sheet for the firing pin to cocking piece lug fit?

I work at a machine shop so taking off material is no problem.

I don't believe the "cocking piece" from a 96 Mauser will safely work on any other. What was the specific type (1893 or 1985) rifle did the bolt come from including which country was it made for?

One thing to think about is the engagement surfaces of the rifle were only surface hardened. If you start to mill or machine the piece you will remove the hardened surface and expose the softer core.

Yeah, looks like its just a no go.

-edit

Just found one, finally. Hopefully this one will work.
