I've taken apart PLENTY of old guns, but the only ones I've seen with precision-made modern-style bolts and screws like these are those that were made by or for the military (because they were the only ones that cared enough about standardization for it to matter). Small-scale builders also didn't want to put an extra penny into a product that they could produce as cheaply as possible, so why would they use a full-length-threaded bolt when only a short-threaded bolt would do everything asked of it, more cheaply?
