Have some questions on this k98 bolt.

I thought that I asked about this bolt before but I can't seem to find anything on it. But I believe it's an MO late bolt with round gas ports. No numbers on the extractor. The safety has no numbers. Is the safety a late style? There are no waffenamts, so who made the bolt. I took photos of all the markings that I saw.20220108_183151.jpg20220108_183228.jpg20220108_183301.jpg20220108_183352.jpg20220108_183402.jpg20220108_183414.jpg20220108_183426.jpg20220108_183434.jpg20220108_183450.jpg20220108_183526.jpg

MI is associated with Fabrique Nationale. Looks like the WaA 140 is missing. I believe that is common on the late bolt bodies from Belgium. What letter block is your rifle?

The rifle was a bolt m/m rifle, so I don't have the matching rifle. Thanks for the information.
A few parts look renumbered, but yes, bolt body is MO from FN.
What parts do you think look renumbered?

because the safety is unmarked, would it be safe to assume the bolt assembly was delivered after numbering was discontinued, or might a partial sn have been marked after the bolt was assigned to a rifle?
