    Actually , you are correct. Upon inspection of this rifle I came to the conclusion that it could be REPAIRED so that it will be functional again. The trigger mechanism coiled spring is broken and needs to be replaced , as well as the gas tube which is obviously beyond repair. Other than that , metal is still strong and the bolt can travel freely as it once did. Internal parts only need a good polishing . This rifle is alive, baby!

    Realize you put a lot of time and effort into it. Not matter what it is a nice relic and great to have if just to admire.

    After more than 70 years in the ground , the bolt came out to see the daylight, once again. I tried VERY HARD to get it out and it took many days of Wd40 oil and hammering it , but to no avail. A few nights ago an idea popped in my mind. Why not use a jack hammer to try to break loose all that stuck dirt and hardened mud that was keeping the bolt stuck. So I took a jack hammer and hammered the hell out of it. It still took me two hours to get it out. Now it's time for a royal cleaning and polishing. By the way, the extractor works just fine. After 70 years in the ground.
