    I can help with the firing pin and sleeve, but I don't have a SC bolt body.

    All mid and later production Smith-Corona bolts were marked with an "X" atop the handle. Early production bolts were not. Your rifle falls in the transition serial range, so either bolt could be considered correct.

    Good Luck! And stay safe!

    Found a complete bolt assembly with no top markings and an 8 on the bottom side. I think it would be correct?

    What do you guys make of this bolt? It's unmarked on top, has an 8 on the underside, so my uneducated guess is it's a SC body, with a Rem sleeve and an unknown firing pin rod? I don't recognize the knurling on the cocking piece portion of the rod. School me up, please! Thanks!

    The bolt is an early Smith-Corona bolt. But the bolt has been refinished (parkerized). The original finish was blue. The bolt sleeve and safety lock are from a Springfield M1903 rifle. The cocking piece is from a WWII spare parts contractor.



    I highly recommend that you keep looking. And stay safe!
