this is a vary small slide bolt the bolts you would use would be 1/8 or 3/16 inch shaft
these are built by compression they are not welded together. so by design over the time the barrel gets slightly larger by way of bending back out then the slide does not fit as snugly any more and can jump around and out of the catches in the barrel. the amount of weight and sway on the latch is what causes this to happen.
