1. Ensure the firearm is unloaded.
2. With the bolt in the rifle, cock the rifle then move the safety to the vertical position. Remove the bolt from the rifle by pulling on the bolt stop on the left side of the receiver and then drawing the bolt to the rear.
3. While pressing in the bolt catch located at the front of the bolt shroud, grip the bolt shroud and unscrew in an anti-clockwise direction. Remove from the bolt body.
4. Place the tip of the firing pin onto a soft surface (some Mauser 98 rifles, including the German K98, have a metal disc in the butt of the rifle which is used for this) and grip the bolt shroud and safety. Push down upon the bolt shroud until the cocking piece moves freely. Remove the cocking piece by turning 90 degrees. Slowly release pressure on the firing pin spring. The firing pin, firing pin spring, cocking piece and bolt shroud are now seperate.
5. To remove the safety catch from the bolt shroud move the safety catch to the safe position and then remove to the rear.
To re-assemble the bolt follow the above steps in reverse order. Make sure the safety catch is in the vertical position when reassembling the bolt. If you reassemble the bolt with the safety catch in the safe or fired position the bolt cannot be returned to the rifle.
It is not necessary to disassemble the bolt in order to remove the extractor.
1. To remove the extractor push it in a clockwise direction until it disengages from its rail.
2. Push the extractor to the front of the bolt until it is free of the extractor collar. The extractor collar is of mild steel and can be removed by gently opening it until it can be removed from the bolt body.
