I have a friend's G98/40 rifle I took to clean. After removing a couple of pounds from the barrel channel and the trigger group all was well. Then I took the bolt apart.
The 98/40 bolt is very different from a typical large ring 98 Mauser. The bolt is a two piece afair with a bolt head a bolt proper with the handle plus lugs attached. The extractor and the ejector are parts that fit into or on the bolthead and are SUPPOSED to rotate with the bolthead as a round is chambered.
Now the bolt head does not rotate & I can't remove the extractor or ejector or turn the bolt head independantly of the bolt.
Does anyone know how to fix this?????
