A friend of mine passed a while back and left me a few items from his collection, one being a ndm-86 7.62x51 308 cal. The rifle looks like it was never fired. All the serial number match and it looks in really good shape. The problem ( really big problem ) I have is there was no bolt in the bolt carrier. After searching high and low with no luck I'm begining to belive the person on this site called it a "chickens tooth" or something like that. Soooooo here are my options as I see them and the other problems I have and would appreciate any input from the well versed members here. The easiest would be to sell it although I would rather get it working. That being said what would it be worth without the bolt? The other option is to have a machinist make one and so the other problem raises its head. I would need a bolt for him to copy or a C.A.D. program if one even exist. So I'm in the market for a damaged bolt, maybe one that had the firing pin pierced the primer and damaged the bolt or any damage as long as I could copy it. Maybe someone has one and knows a machinest and could have one made and I could buy it from you? The other question I have is if the SVD Dragunov bolt would work in the Norinco rifle? I've read a few differant thing and am still not sure if they are interchangeable. If they are that would at least give me a second option although they are probable just as scarus.
