These rifles were known as "click clack" rifles because you have to hold the trigger back for the rifle to recock then release it to fire again. Not knowing this will cause the rifle to jam and damage the extractor eventually.
I have a Westernfield SB 808c which is the same. It's also the same as a Savage 6 & 87. I get parts for it at POPPERT'S GUNSMITHING online.
I purchased a breach bolt for it and it doesn't work as smoothly as the original. A new extractor for the original bolt worked best.
Not a bad rifle once you get used to the unusual operation.
