    Is this bolt inserted / put together correctly?

    I'm pretty sure this metal lug at the back of the bold is supposed to be at the 6 o'clock position instead of the 4 o'clock position.

    Bolt moves just fine but it will not fire.

    Thanks for any help.

    That looks to be the cocking piece and should be at 6 o'clock.
    On most guns you canhook it on a sturdy item like a vise.pull it away from the bolt and put a penny or paper clip between it and the piece in front of it and turn it the rest of the way. Then put back in gun and it should work.

    I'm pretty sure I got it all worked out. All I really needed to do was get a good grip on the back of the bolt (I don't know what it's called) and twist it to the position in the first pic below.
