I got back with the guy with the bolts and he said it was a 22 magnum bolt that was given to him. It was originally a double extractor bolt that broke on the outside extractor -- The inside one was in perfect condition. Seems he thought about using it in a regular 10/22 receiver so he cut the front off at the rear of the charging handle groove and brazed on the front of a regular 10/22 bolt. He said the normal extractor fits fine but he said he had to use a modified magnum firing pin. He said he didn't have the time to try it out with anything and it's been sitting around for quit a few years. I wonder if he was going to try it with the 17 Mach2? Next time I see him I'll ask.
