...the firing pin tunnel in the bolt shaft should have two demensional diameters...actually three......after traveling about 20mm from the rear it narrows so that the firing pin spring cannot further enter the tunnel...preventing it from entering the firing pin stud cutout..this can be easily seen when you push the firing pin and spring into the will meet resistance and the spring will compress as you push it further can also see what appears to be a concentric ring when shining a flashlight through the "firing pin hole" in the bolt face... can roughly check this by inserting the firing pin with the spring installed several times into the tunnel...just push it in and allow it to spring back......the spring should start to compress when it is about two thirds into the tunnel...
