    Thanks Gents. I should have separated into two postings the heads pace issue and the locking lug length issue. The head space issue I feel is OK. The head space issue is good using my coin field gauge. I also used the coloring of the backside of the lug. Operating stripped bolt handle about 20 times I have good wear marks on back side of both lugs. Now the locking lug issue. I have been told that the * marked bolts should have a left locking lug length of .0725. I measure my Eddystone's * at .0618. The locking lug length is what I am confused on. See above postings with pictures Thanks

    Looking from the rear forward, its the right bolt lug that was lengthened. There should be a corresponding relief cut in the right side of the barrel face.

    I believe everyone is trying to put in words which lug we are talking about? The right lug is the one with the ejector cut through the middle. The right lug was iincreased to made the MKI* or MKII. This is not to say that there were variations in the P14 bolt production, yes there was. There is also a lot of details in the P14 Production that we do not know. Each manufacturer did there own thing. Additionally it's quite possible the MKI* bolt was modified to fit a MKI rifle after the rifle left Britishicon service.
