Default Need some advice on my 1897 12g winchester pump

Just inherited this shotgun. It's a 1917? 1879 12g winchester 20" barrel. The bolt looks worn to me but what do you guys think? Looks like it has a grove or notch missing out of it in the center of the two rails. Let me know what you think!

It looks a little rough to me but I'm not an expert how does the inside of the receiver look?
