So the take down bolt for my .410 got lost in the distant past and my father a machinist did a weird thing for him he did a hap hazard job replacing it. Today some 40 years after I purchased the gun and easily 30 after my dad "fixed" it I learned to reshape a bolt head with a drill press files and a bit of sand paper. I also did a little work with a tap and die and got the bolt to fit snug and hold the barrel down properly.
This is not a collectible or rare piece by any means, it is just the first gun I bought with my own money, I paid 10.00 and a rabbit or a pheasant which ever I shot first with it.
So here is a pic of the end result
