Can anyone tell me what this bolt may fit ? I got this in a box from a estate sale

Its a controlled round feeding bolt so perhaps something like a Mauser, Ruger, or Winchester 70.

Looks like it is from a Sako. Not controlled round feed, the full length extractor-looking rib is actually a baffle to block the right bolt raceway in the event of a blown case and extractor flying out. When the bolt is locked the extractor is in line with the right rail, and can come out that way should a case head fail.
Notice the rib and right (bottom) locking lug are separate in the top picture.

It's a push feed bolt but the shroud doesn't look correct for a Sako and most if not all, Sakos have three lugs.

Looks like an early one from the 60's. Dont know the exact model name, but sometime around the L55(?) or Vixen time. Early Sakos were definitely two lug, 90 degree bolt lift.
