Remington 700 bolt lock

I took delivery of a Remington stainless 700 LH 30-06 rifle. I honestly can't tell if it's been fired.

One thing though, there is a little locking cylinder on the left side of the bolt shroud. Perusing pictures of Remington 700 rifles, used and new, some have it, most don't.

Was that a feature they installed then discontinued?

Edited to add: I googled the device and it's known as a 'j' lock and can cause everything from tripled lock time to flat feet.

However, there are numerous testimonies from owners of such a gun that have never had an issue and accuracy is equal to their non 'j' lock guns.
