Franklin Rice III: So while talking it apart pushed in the button and turned it the. Wrong way or something cause it wont turn now
Rich Valentine: My safety is stuck to the left, how can I fix that?
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?
Forge Shop: What about the extractor??
Danny Kirchofer: What happens if u don't put the safety in the middle
Kadzila1100: grab a screwdriver and press the thing on 2:09 back and rotate i had the samo problem
Paul Mayr: Thank You.
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.
OspreyBravo18: thnx so much there was still some cosmaline hiding in the bolt all cean now
Walter B: Superb video, easy to follow, and on focus. Thanks I have two of them to clean.
2AToday: How do you like the straight bolt vs a turned down one (like on my M48 or the 98k)?
redrumm101: I have a questing. With the saftey on you can unrooster it on mine?
h2kDotheDU: I don't know the drill. What is it?
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.
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!
Iwillbedurnd: Well Iwillbedurnd!!!!! That pisses me off! Do you know how long I've been fighting trying to do that?
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
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 position
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.
