You should also check the ejector as it doubles as an interrupter in the mag well.
Yes, I believe the spring is in correctly. I can post pics when I get home.


The interrupter feels strong and moves freely so I have elimanted that as the problem but will clean it again incase I am wrong.

Ref: chambering/ not chambering- did you strip down the bolt and clean it? Is the extractor free to move? Assuming that ammo is ammo, and there are no gross dimensional differences between cartridges, the extractor must move to ride over the rim. Also be sure to clean the chamber GOOD. I pull the bolt, use a section of cleaning rod, a worn 20 gauge brush, drill, and solvent- check rod into drill, attach brush, dip in solvent, insert in chamber, spin while moving in and out for about 30 seconds, followed by clean patch.

Just spoke with the seller of this firearm. He will be mailing me new magazine internals. Hope this fixes the issue and gets here fast. I will update when I receive the items.

I stripped the bolt down but did not focus on the extractor. Will do this tonight. I have not cleaned with a drill. Will do this as well. Thanks for input.

I am in O'Fallon, MO. Just outside of St. Louis, MO. I sure would appreciate help if it is available.

I have not done this, but many people advocate carefully warming the firearm to get out excess cosmoline. I'd be really careful with that idea.

Use grease on the bolt lugs, not oil.

I've shot alot of mosins that you had to slap the bolt open. And closed.

On a similar idea, I soak metal parts in mineral spirits. Even when you think it is clean the mineral spirits always look like Bourbon, but allas, you can't drink it. Soviet cosmoline is more like bees wax then a grease. As far as a lube, I use CLP, FP10... Why? because it is friggin' cold here in the winter, grease gets hard. Likewise in the summer it flies everywhere. Since I use corrosive ammo and will strip it anyway, it makes no sense to use grease. No advantage.
