Yup, sporterized 91 Argie. I'd take a real close look at that bolt handle root/receiver area I was talking about. If the root isn't right down touching the receiver you'll have problems with the stud if it's there and even if it isn't, it can still give you issues.
If you've got it so it will work, it could just be a confluence of things coming together to create the need for a lightly longer FP. You seem to have solved the issue, so I'd proceed carefully and be alert for any indication of problems. Back when I had the gunshop I've had to remake more than one FP just a little longer to get reliable ignition.
Another thing I'd look at is I'd take the bolt back apart and soak the stripped bolt body in my favorite solvent. Then I'd use a screw driver or something to make sure there's no gunk down in the front that might be blocking the FP fall. As anyone who works on tractors knows, sometimes gunk can mess things up just enough to require a bit more power or fall to get things to work.
