5 To disassemble extractor (13) (used on bolt Type No. 1) grasp claw of extractor and lift up carefully to free stud on bottom of extractor from locating hole in bolt. When stud is clear, pull extractor forward and away from bolt. When reassembling, end of extractor should fit inside of bolt body between the two bolt assembly pins. (See Fig. A for extractor used on bolt Type No. 2) Unscrew front and rearguard screws (20) and (29) and remove stock.

7 Reassemble rifle in reverse order.

9 To reassemble Type No. 1 bolt assembly (rotary head) into receiver, align ejector (10) with slot on bottom of bolt body. With bolt head guide pin (arrow) in 9 o'clock position, push bolt forward into receiver. For one piece bolt assembly (Type No. 2), simply place bolt into receiver with handle in 2 o'clock position and push forward.

6 Back off housing lock screw (23) one complete turn. Drive out housing pin (24) through large hole in top of safety and remove complete housing assembly from receiver. Lift sear (43) and remove trigger spring (50) from housing (47). Push safety pivot pin retaining washer

8 Bolt must be cocked to reassemble into rifle. When uncocked, firing pin head will snap forward into cocking cam at rear of bolt (A). Clamp firing pin head in vise jaws and raise bolt handle until firing pin head moves out of cocking cam and snaps into cocking notch on rear of bolt (B).
