I have a k98, upon purchasing the rifle I was told it was all matching, I’m starting to question finishes on bolt and the firing pin. Who thinks this is a force match? I’ve seen other bolts that look like this too. It’s a code 42 1938 k98

The bolt body, safe, and gas shield were scrubbed and renumbered.... the pin appears to be a Gew.98 pin. The pics are a bit too far away. I was hoping it might be an Arsenal rework, but rather doubt it. Are the pin numbers XX'ed out, and can you show the cocking piece too in close up with the pin...
