Slamfire , i have two of the early bolts with the bushed firing pin. One is like yours missing the bushing , and the other is in perfect condition. When i can , i will remove the bolt from the circa 1878 45/60  for some pics. Would like to remove the threaded plug so we could measure it and make a drawing of it . I also would like a drawing of this part in order to fabricate one or two. One thing to remember the early bolt with the threaded bushing uses a different firing pin than the  later bolt without  the bushing  . I do have a spare of this early type  firing pin along with the one in the old rifle .  ,,,DT

Thanks for the description.  I understand what the OP is looking for, but have no idea where he can find one.

You Bet! Pettifogger. Here is a pic. of the Winchester 1876 bolt one on the left is the later version without the threaded plug . The one on the right is the early model with the threaded plug / bushing for firing pin. Note the firing pin difference . Glad Slamfire brought this up , when i disassembled these two they both needed cleaning.,,,DT

 Man ! a picture is worth a 1000 word's !!! I don't remember if I said''' but 1873's in 44-40 and 38-40 have the same plug ,,,soooo, if any one here has a plug ( or bolt) for a 1st gen. 73,,,if price is right i'd be interested,. Will be needing a new extractor,,pin,,, and have to weld a tab on bottom of bolt,,working on the right back half toggle link now. ( mini mill & lathe )
