Walther Sportmodell bolt issue

Greetings from Arizona
I am a new member who has been searching for a bolt for my rifle for many years. I was finally was able to buy one on line from eBay. The seller said the bolt was from a Sportmodell V but it fit my rifle perfectly. I was unable to insert the bolt at first due the firing pin catching on the trigger release for the bolt to fire. I did some inspection and discovered the points on the firing pin were located toward the center of the firing pin but in order to activate the bolt to fire these contact points needed to be located close to the rear of the pin. It appears I need to find a replacement firing pin which I have had no success in locating. I am looking for advise on locating the correct firing pin, the correct bolt, or someone to manufacture the correct firing pin.

I have a Sportmodell V and a Meisterbuchse and the bolts interchange. From my understanding, the Sportmodell series used the same Walther patented bolt action. You have the Deutsches Sportmodell, the Walther competitive rifle to the DSM 34? When inserting the bolt you bought, did you have to press the bolt release button on the left side of the bolt receiver?

Yes, and remove the trigger guard bolts so the stock would separate from
the barrel. This allowed the breech to clear the trigger assembly and the
bolt was easily inserted and locked.

Then there is something different in the bolt sold to you as from a Modell V. The bolt should be inserted into the receiver wit out any removal of bolts or receiver from the stock or anything. Can you provide a photo of your bolt.
The first photo is an early Walther Model V. The second is a Walther Sportmodell. I must admit that I sold my Walther Sportmodells but I thought that action was identical to other of the Meisterbuchse series.

First of all I want to thank you for all your help to date. I have searching for a
bolt for my rifle for many years and finally located the one pictured. I have
attached photos of my rifle and the bolt. Please pay attention to the placement
of the trigger contact points on the firing pin as they should be closer to the rear
of the bolt. If you require more pictures please let me know.
I am having trouble loading any pictures. I will send pictures when I am able to
figure out how to attach them.
Thanks for the help, we were finally able to get it to work.

When posting a reply, you must use the “ go advanced” and “manage attachments” buttons. Sometimes your image file size may be too large and need to be reduced. Then upload it.

The pictures have been resized and your instructions followed and my results are the same.
When I try to upload the pictures entered I get the same message “upload failed”. I don’t
know what I am doing wrong?

https://imgur.com/gallery/ZmtHMJpDoes being a Junior Member have anything to do with not being able to post pictures?
I have tried all the instructions in the posts indicating how to post pictures without any
success. I have now been trying to post some pictures for 3 days with the same results.
The pictures seem to load and the same “upload failed” message comes up.
I finally found someone, a member, who is willing to help me in my 50 year search to
finally get my rifle functioning and all he wants is a picture. It can’t be that difficult to
load a picture but it sure seems to be on this site. I am becoming very frustrated but
have not given up hope for help on posting pictures.
We finally were able to post some pictures with everyone’s help.

Upload your images to www.imgur.com, copy their URL, i.e. www.imgur.com/imageexample.jpg and paste them here enclosed in between the IMG tags, i.e. [ i m g ] www.imgur.com/imageexample.jpg [/ i m g ] (take out the spaces I had to add or the forum would try to treat my dummy example as actual image).
