    would love to know.
    yours similar ? mine is the only L57 i have ever handled.
    old smith i know had an L57 bolt a while back believe it came from an a.c.t. gun shop a while back, ended up as a custom rifle using an med frame.
    he probably would not have thought to much about the rear end of his bolt.
    going to do a few small jobs for me as soon as he feels safe enough. will ask .

    No, mine is the standard version and we just don’t see many L57’s on the market here.

    That's the first L57 I've seen reported with the short "Australian" cocking piece. Must have been an aftermarket modification. Does anyone know why these exist?
