Well, I finally got an original cocking piece in the mail today and installed it.
The bolt now cocks on closing, but the bolt still wont close while chambering a round. Im beginning to wonder if maybe it's the extractor? If I take
the bolt out of the rifle and place a round under the extractor, the round is very very loose and falls off with just even a tiny shake.
I also believe the bolt sleeve may be something non-original, which "may" also be a cause of the problem. The sleeve is the same color as the
unknown cocking piece (these 2 pieces are the only different colored pieces on the bolt, the rest are similar in color) and I cannot see any symbols I
recognize on it.
Im leaning towards an extractor issue this time.
I looked over Ebay and a few other places on the internet and see that there's a hole in the top area of the extractor on the side (side towards the
chamber). My extractor has no such hole. Pictures below.
What the extractor is supposed to look like, atleast from all the images Ive looked at.
What mine looks like.
