At the last gun show here,I, was able to make a deal on a model 1903
Mannlicher/Schonauer carbine, to match the long rifle I, have in my
collection.
NEED HELP, The carbine is in poor gen condition, and needs T.L.C.
The main spring on the bolt is broken or rusted up.
My problem is how, do you disassemble the bolt? There MUST be a trick
or a simple answer!! Maybe instructions WOULD help.

It's good just like the instructions on this site but it really helped with the last step about pushing in the extractor while pulling out the bolt head... that should be included in this site... too bad I cleaned my bolt last night before I saw his page... took a while getting that dang bolt head extended to reinsert into the carbine!

I just finished reassembling the bolt for my M95. WHAT A HASSLE!
I noticed that the bolt was a little difficult to open, so I decided to take it apart, clean and lubricate it. It works far better now, but it's clearly not a job for the soldier in the field.

Incidently, dry is NOT good for nearly every firearm I'm familiar with. I use grease for the locking lugs and the camming (or spiral) components, light oil on the firing pin.

Here's a link to Dave Gorzas' website on the M95 bolt. It contains invaluable information and illustrations on assembly, repair, and operation of the bolt of the M95. Follow his instructions on adjusting the extractor arc, extractor tail wear, and lubrication and your M95 bolt will be a LOT slicker than it probably is now. Also, the PITA tendency for the bolt head to not stay extended when the bolt is removed from the rifle will go away. I printed the website information to pdf in case the URL ever goes dead. I'd suggest that anyone else do the same and file it in a safe place. It's that good.

See: http://www.ryngate.org/M95/

Hey Guys,

Got a M95 as a project to keep me from getting in trouble with the wife. It needs a new extractor and some other pieces but for the most part I have acquired them all. Except the tips and tricks for the bolt disassembly, cleaning and whatnot. Does anyone have links to the above mentioned articles that still work? When I try them there is a bunch of ads pop up.

I've got a question for y'all: Has anyone ever see the flange on the underside of the barrel milled away? I'll upload a picture tonight so its clear what I mean...

Before I forget mine is a cut down rifle accepted into service in 1917 and converted in 1932 or after. Pictures to follow.


Thanks for any and all anyone can tell me about these old warhorses.


Victor
