Isn't the top one a P-14 Enfield?

No worries we are here to help!

The top rifle is a P-14 Enfield (or an American "P-17" if chambered in 30-06)

The bottom one looks like a Lee–Enfield No. 4 Mk I.

A bolt should run about $50 - $75. Then comes the cost of taking it all to a gun smith to check the head spacing with the replacement bolt to make sure it's safe to fire.

The P-14 is worth about $200-$250 depending on the rifling in the barrel. I have one and sold two others, they are a good rifle and people love to hunt with them.

The Enfield without the bolt, about $75 - $100 depending on the barrel. With the bolt about $150.

Marstar shows stripped bolts and the pieces you'll need to complete the No.4 in stock if it helps.

There's three different bolt heads for these rifles though. (Or maybe even four, I can't recall ATM) The rifle was designed this way so a) they could simplify the assembly with a quick and easy way to adjust headspace and b) adjust headspace as the rifles wore. Determining which one you need might be the sticky wicket. And you'll need someone with a headspace gauge to verify that it's correct.

You might want to dig around the milsurps forum for more info, these both being ex-military rifles and all.
