    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.

    https://www.marstar.ca/dynamic/category.jsp?catid=78224

    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.
