the bolt is out of the rifle, and it will not go back in. i need to figure out how to turn the bolt from the firing position to safety while outside of the rifle.

^ +1, you need to learn this one, it's like teething.


I find it funny because this happens to every one of my friends that buy mauser.

+1 I thought I broke my first Mauser which was a 24/47. I was freaking out. Just recock the bolt, it'll go in.

A bit ago I had a 24/47 shipped to me and the bolt came in the fired position, freaked me out, but it takes like 30 seconds to fix.

Don't scratch up the edge of your table!

I did that one time with my K98. I honestly don't know a mauser owner that hasn't done that at least once.

i use the table trick whenever i disassemble the bolt, works great.

wow, never had this happen, although all but one of my mausers are small-ring, does that make a difference?
