    Anyone have any experience getting an older firearm repaired in NE FL (Jacksonville or St. Aug)? I am looking to use someone local but want someone trustworthy.
    Thanks for your assistance.

    It is either a broken extractor or ejector. I never learned enough about it to be able to take it apart like I can with my Glocks, 1911s, or my ARs.

    It chambers a round just fine, fires just fine cycles the bolt just fine then goes "click". a manual cycle of the bolt doesn't do anything and there is the spent casing right where it started.

    That is why i need someplace that can work on it for me.

    m2hmghb,
    Thanks for the links. Now we will see if I can follow directions and get this thing apart. If I get hung up I will post and beg for assistance.

    All,
    I finally got this thing apart and here is the bolt. It appears from this picture from http://www.surplusrifle.com that i am missing 3 parts.

    Here is a picture of the front end of the bolt with the extractor, extractor spring, and extractor spring plunger missing.

    This picture is of the 3 parts that I actually have.

    I will look at Bill Ricca's site for the parts but other than there is there a good place to get these parts?
    Thanks
