While working on my 1917 LSA .410 project I find myself needing a longer bolt head than I have on hand. I am looking for one that measures between .631" on the low end and .639" on the high end. Thanks!

I'm sure you'll find one (or more), but it could take a dozen, or more, before you find one that actually both headspaces and 'clocks' correctly.

Just a suggestion, but rather than keep buying, and buying, and buying ………..
It could be more economic to send your bolt to someone like Brian d**k at BDL and let him set up your bolt - it may be a little more expensive than buying a bolt head 'privately', but will be a lot cheaper than buying 10 or 20 bolt heads before you find one that properly 'fits'.

Brian is (probably) one of the most experienced Enfield Armourers in the US

Yep, I have fitted some in the past so I know it can take several to find one that clocks in. I always ask around first just to see what people have and then head to Brian. I've dealt with him many times on parts.
