Default Mauser Bolt Problem-Please help, bolt does not go back in!

I posted on a Mauser site, but I wanted to spread the questions to see if I can get some answers.


Thanks.

Post it here, rather than just posting a link, please. It's not difficult to copy and paste your other post.

Thanks.
Check the cocked status. You must have changed it from when you removed it.

Default bolt not going back in

Try pressing in on the bolt release mechanismwhile sliding in, and check if the safrty lever is in the proper ploace, I am not near mine right now but I am going off of my memory, I havent even shot mine yet, but I have field stripped it when I first got it , I had the same problem, but then I remembered the bolt release mechanism on the left side of the receiver, pressed it in and it slid on home,good luck buddy.

Along with pulling out on the bolt release lever on the left rear of the receiver, you may also have to pull back on the trigger to get it to go in.

If holding open on the bolt release doesnt work, and your extractor is inline, then you must have gotten the firing pin out of line. A very easy fix but hard to describe.

This thread is almost 2.5 years old!! He may have figured it out by now. This was his 1 and only post.

Probably had the extractor on the wrong side of the bolt . I've seen dozens of "sportsman" send their rifles to Browning for the same problem and all that was wrong is the extractor was on the wrong side of the bolt.
NO !!!------This is NO--BS !! I was there and I serviced the rifle's.

Vearl- I keeping with a time honored tradition, anyone that posts to a thread more than a year old is required to send the thread a birthday card, stand out in your front yard, and sing Happy Birthday at the top of their lungs.

This thread is about 3 and a half years old.
