    Greetings,

    Call me stupid, I think I deserve it for that one. I read everything I could put my hands on Internet and for the love of God, I can't remove the bolt from my new Yugo Mauser 24/47 that is still wimming in cosmoline.

    I got the gun with the bolt removed and it took me 10 minutes to figure out how to slide it in. But now, I can't figure out how to slide it out. I tried to pull the trigger, to push the trigger, to mode the safety on the bolt to the vertical position, to more the safety to the right side, the left side and it does not go out!

    Anyone can tell me exactly what I have to do to remove the bolt?

    Thank you

    I don't know about the Yugo Mauser, but I know how to do it on my 1891 Argentine Mauser. On the 1891 the rear or the area when the bolt goes in is spring loaded and swings out. You swing it out and the bolt slides right out. Like I said, I've never handled a Yugo 24/47, but that's how to do it on an 1891 Argentine.

    Yes, that's how the bolt on my 1891 Argentine comes out.

    Thank you guys! It worked!

    Now I just have to make my stupid scope on my stupid ROMAK-3 not move when I shoot. I was told I have the wrong mount for the rail...but they sell that scope and rail with all the latest ROMAK they sold. I can't believe I am the only one having that kind of issue......

    Thank you

    Greetings,

    Removing the bolt. I just had to pull a small lever that was blocking the botl to pull out. Kind of a newbie question I asked...hehehe

    Thank you
