Re: Mini Mauser
Several years ago I had one of these and two of the guys that I that I frequently shoot with had them also. Then one day one of them had the extractor fall out. Upon close examination of mine and the other shootable rifle, we discovered that extractors were fitted to a groove milled into the bolt and then only staked in place. I soon got rid of mine, gun number two was sold also, and the one needing repair was sent off for a very lengthy and expensive repair to make it function again. Check yours to see if you might have the same extractor problems that we all experienced. As I understand it the newer models have had the problem retified, but the old ones like I had the problem still exists.
