Here's a beginner's question: are the No.1 and No. 4 bolt bodies and/or cocking pieces compatible?

Scenario:
My No.1 Mk. III is missing the striker screw. I order one from a parts warehouse, it is too small (diameter). I assume that they sent the wrong screw (although for the life of me, I can't figure out where this screw goes). I order another one from another parts warehouse; same thing.
I go down to my local Lowes and pick up a machine screw (#6-32 x 1/4"), which fits perfectly (but kills me to have a non-reg. part).
I then get the brilliant idea :)rolleyes:) to pull the screw from my No. 4 Mk. I* and try it, perfect fit.
Wait a minute, are they not different bolt bodies and/or cocking pieces?
Apologies, if this is the epitomy of ignorance.

cocking pieces and firing pins are interchangeable.
its possible that the No.1 Mk. III has No. 4 coking piece so it will take the smaller screw
the screw heads are also different shapes in different countries
