Default Re: Safety and firing issues

Thanks for the welcome Rick and Paul. Having now read the entire PH unveiled thread and most of the other ones it looks like if you want to know anything PH related THL place to be. Probably the only drawback is that most of the photos make my old .243 look very agricultural - there are some very nice rifles on display here!

Now, I have dissassembled the bolt, soaked the bolt housing in solvent, cleaned all the components up, lightly oiled and reassembled. I followed a coupled of clips I found on youtube for M98 bolts which were very good.

I agree that it seems like the shroud is not fully tightened, however on reassembly the bolt seemed to go together as expected - rotate until it clicks and cannot be rotated any further. The attached photos show the bolt in ccocked, safety on and fired modes.

Regards, Marcus
