weird general dm bolt question

so the threads between where the back cap and top had screw together are stripped.

will my bolt still work if i just push it all the way in. everything lines up correctly but these two pieces dont thread together, they just sort of sit next to each other.

in theory it should work because air goes throughout that entire part, there are no seals or anything. maybe ill just wait till the weekend to find out.

It should work fine as long as they still fit together well, just more irritating to remove the bolt.

its a pm6, and back caps are hard to find. i just bought this one from a guy but it came stripped. he sold it to me for 5 dollars so i can't complain. as long as it works im fine, im turning this into my workhorse/beater/loaner gun.

thanks guys.
