Winchester 94, 30-30, 1973 vintage. Just your average beater, pick up, saddle scabbard gun. Used on a ranch it's entire life, mostly coyotes, badgers, a few mule deer and a couple elk. I came into it for a very good price and it works very well, accurate as expected, functions with cast and jacketed in all different head stamps.
The firing pin hole in the bolt face is worn oblong down. Firing pin strikes low on the primer.
I have been around a few of these guns over the last 60 years and I have never seen this before.
Can the bolt be bored and bushed to bring everything back to center?
