scryersniper4567: I just purchased a Surplus M48 and the safety is stuck the whole way to the
right, I can't get it to move and I haven't had a chance to remove the bolt
from the rifle yet. Any Ideas?
cheater5tx: Nice video, thanks!
Iwillbedurnd: you just saved a mauser! I got it apart and sure enough a but load of
cosmoline holding the firing pin back! Thanks for the video!
kylethelincey: Do a search for "mauser bolt fix" by a youtuber named dantheman. This video
should be able to guide you on how to fix your issue. I don't have a video
of the process, but his will help you out.
redrumm101: I have a questing. With the saftey on you can unrooster it on mine?
Kadzila1100: grab a screwdriver and press the thing on 2:09 back and rotate i had the
Sasquatch: HELP! I had the safety flipped to the left when I pushed the bitten &
twisted the end of the bolt. It made a quarter turn before I realized what
I did. Now I cannot get the rear bolt assembly to go back to the original
position. It is stuck. The button can be depressed, but the rear assembly
doesn't move. Please tell me there is a solution! Thanks for your help.
kylethelincey: @government28 My friends mauser didn't have the hole in the stock either.
With his, we just found a hard surface(NOT the dining room table), and put
down some rags (t-shirt, blanket, whatever) held onto the bottom of the
firing pin and pushed down to get it apart. These firing pins are pretty
damn tough, so I wouldn't be too concerned about breaking or bending it.
kylethelincey: @Robertosanchez56 If I understand right, you had the saftey put on fire
when you pressed the button to twist the bolt head off, correct? If thats
the case, you got to get a damn good grip on the bolt head and twist it
back into the fire position. If I remember correctly, I believe you twist
the bolt head clockwise. its a pain in the ass and it may take a while, but
just twist it like crazy and it will eventually pop back into the fire
2AToday: How do you like the straight bolt vs a turned down one (like on my M48 or
kylethelincey: @blackbeard456 If you're talking about the cosmoline, i would seriously
just take it outside and use a hair dryer on it for about a half hour,
wiping off all the cosmoline with a paper towel. As far as the front band,
mine has a little hinge on the bottom of the rifle keeping the band in
place. I haven't taken it off, but I have pushed in the hinge and slightly
hammered the band to just see if it will move (it did). As far as just
oiling it, I use break-free gun oil
Forge Shop: What about the extractor??
Danny Kirchofer: What happens if u don't put the safety in the middle
Iwillbedurnd: Well Iwillbedurnd!!!!! That pisses me off! Do you know how long I've been
fighting trying to do that?
