SUCCESS! I got the bolt out! The chamber, bolt, etc. everything looks MINT! It felt amazing to cycle this rifle for the first time probably since the vet brought it back from the Pacific! In fact, I took a video of me cycling it for the first time. It needs a good cleaning, and the barrel is all stopped up with gunk and spider webs... BUT I WILL RETURN IT TO IT'S FORMER GLORY! BANZAI!
Here's the vid of me cycling it for the first time!
Here are some additional pictures. Sorry for the cell phone photo quality... I had very time available to reassemble the rifle. In two mins I will be on the road to visit my fiancee in Albany! A GOOD WEEK/ WEEKEND FOR ME!
