    I have no recollection of them implementing stock bolt shortening as an armourer's instructions after a certain time, except with the indians. If it were implemented then Lithgowicon's after 1940 likely would not have come with the square or the plate, but they did. Also I don't know of any kind of varnishing done through FTR's, unless during the FTR they applied an extra coat of linseed which has stuck to the top and gone shiny (which is very very unlikely). Could be someone's target rifle where they refinished it and ground the bolt down. What about the bolt? How did it come out?

    My Enfield incompetence mainly - and I think this - "If you have the rifle cocked and with the bolt shut down and you pull the trigger while holding the cocking piece back you can let it move forward just a little, then let the trigger go and the cocking piece will sit at half-cock, which locks the bolt and the trigger. As tiriaq said you need to pull the cocking piece back to full cock in order to unlock the gun."
