what is this for ? looks like a RH feed and possibly could be reversed for LH feed. No markings except for "A" on the stud end. I am thinking maybe for a swedish M36 ? but would this also work in a M37 ? has a little bit of staining on it but looks serviceable

Appears to be m37 if you plan to get rid of it please let me know
it looks like it could be for a M37 but I have a swedish bolt (single feed) with the same A mark, but they did make a dual feed gun ( I think) . I am someday building a couple of M37's, so I will need this, I just found this today sorting threw my 1917 stuff.

Not M37. Swedish is my best guess. Something European. How's the spacing on a bolt? Is it short like the ANM2, or does it fit?

The Sweeds used a dedicated RH and LH extractor Mirror images of each other.
It looks like an ANM2 A USGI one would be marked. My guess is Vickers Armstrong 303

Dang, that's a good point on the Swedish stuff. I have one of those RH extractors. Excellent call, Dave. Knew we kept you around for a good reason! :D

Thanks Rollin and Dave, I tried the extractor on a 1919 bolt and it does not fit, does not line up with bolt face. guess it's going in my ? parts bin.

I got a M36 swedish bolt from Dave last creek and I will try it on that but I think it will not fit either, He might be right about "303 armstrong bolt"
