I picked up a WRA today at the Chantilly gunshow that was “correct” but got a fair price in it. After getting home and really being able to rip it apart and reference my book, I realized that it has a W marked flat bolt instead of the examples I can find are all round, it has a M marked magazine catch that is also W marked, and I completely overlooked the incorrect handguard. Everything else on the WRA looks correct. What are the chances that the flat bolt was just left over and is correct for this gun, and I can’t find an example of one that has the “modified” magazine catch. Any insight would be very much appreciated.

I would say very possible the Flat bolt was pulled from the parts bin and used in this range.
Pretty big overlap of parts in this range.

Pictures are always appreciated by us Junkies !

Thx,

Bolt is in the overlap range. Mag catch is slightly out of the range for it’s use but I wouldn’t necessarily count it out. Look at the wear and see how it corresponds to the rest of the parts. What type of rear sight does it have?

Did some more looking and the CCNL’s has a 5660xxx with an M marked mag catch so I think you’re good to go.
