In a big bunch of parts I found two unnumbered plumb handled bolts. They looked well used. No indication of file marks. Is it unusual to find Japanese rifle parts without numbers?

On occasion, the unnumbered (but properly proofed) bolts from late Jinsen T-99 rifles will be encountered. Other than that, unnumbered bolts aren't a common occurance.

Interesting, When I picked up my Kokura 2.5x Sniper recently I had the same question on the unnumbered bolt. Same thing, genuine sniper bolt and no indication of ever been numbered, but with correct proofs. Vic Soto said not unusual for these early Kokura sniper bolts to be unnumbered. Learn something every day, and I almost passed on it because of the bolt. Glad now I didn't. Skid

I have a late nagoya bolt, no numbers, in a no number substitute 99.

One would expect some replacement bolts to be around, but they were likely numbered if installed at any facility above the field level, IMHO.
