P14

Postby dhtaxi » Wed Oct 19, 2016 6:10 pm

I recently acquired a P14 its a bit scruffy but it was cheap. I can not get the bolt out of it. If I remember right all you need to do is move the spring loaded stop on the left out of the way and it should come out. Or am I missing something.

"Open the bolt, and pull the bolt stop outward, holding it out while removing the bolt toward the rear".

Hard to believe... somebody besides Duncan and Miller Tyme has actually added to his collection this year. Congrats. :bigsmile:

I think I know what the problem. Its a machining jobby. I should be able to sort it out easily enough.

I finally got the bolt out. I fitted a Parker Hale rear sight to the rifle in place of the original leaf sight when I first acquired the rifle. The problem is with the sight in place the tension on the bolt release leaf spring is to great so you can not remove the bolt. I have stripped the sight off and removed the spring loaded bolt stop. I believe I can fix it but I have other things on my mind at the moment my lathe has blown up for the third time to day. F**king Chinese shite
