    Thank you for your reply. I'd like to note that this rifle has been made unusable. The top of the barrel has lead in it, not all the way down though. This is no issue to me as I don't intent to shoot this gun.
    The thing that bothers me is that the bolt, the safety and the ammo button do not work. I only want this to operate for the feelings, the sound.
    For now, it's just looking at a bird without wings.




    (right mouse click and open in new webpage)
    I've no clue why I cannot move anything, which I hope to resolve with some help of you guys!
    Let be clear that I already appriciate your help, alot!

    EDIT: @ 7:38 - Simular weapon, rifle can do anything even though it's been dissabled.

    Here is the two new photos





    Someone really went to town with that deactivation. At this point I recommend you leave your bolt alone. Depending on your countries laws it could be illegal to mess with it as it is deactivated. Generally every country has different deactivation standards, however most seem to be leaning towards nothing moving and simply being a welded solid chunk of metal (which is likely the case with yours). Altering a deactivation can result in jail time depending on your country and I wouldn't want to see that happen.

    As a side note if you ever come to Canadaicon (specifically Sault Ste. Marie) I will let you take a go with my Mauser-Vergueiro's.

    I'll keep that in mind, thank you! I was in Toronto last summer haha, not that far away I see.

    I couldn't get my mind to the fact it could be glued or welded because it doesn't show anything like it. I just read that it WAS a part of the law, so I guess it is welded from the bottom of the bolt? Too bad..

    There's no way imma get that bolt out if it's welded, hm.. Can't get to it from below either since the ammo spring won't open.

    I would think taking the screws out would free the whole trigger mech, but by the looks it's a moot point anyway. Besides, if the law states...?

    Rendered rifles here in Western Aust it is required apart from the barrel being closed and holes along it and into the chamber the bolt has to have the firing pin cut and the F.P hole closed also to be fully welded underneath closed into the action.

    It should indeed, but it doesn't. All I can do is wiggle it, so I asume it's welded or something..
    I'm not leaving this house with the gun so I don't bother the law. To me it's save enough since there are no bullets or children around, plus the barrel is filled with lead.

    I'd like to thank you all for your information!

    bolt ''stuck''

    Allo,
    could be a cartridge ''stuck'' in chamber........ if you can not find information from family members,. ask a friend who is familiar with rifles or you may need a gunsmith...$$$$$

    Someone may have tried to close bolt on wrong cartridge and forced it to close..:..
    handle it like it is LOADED until you get the bolt out.

    very nice rifle,keep us informed on what happens.

    Just saw the photos......too bad,they are great rifles......the parts like the stock,sights and even the various screws are worth money to people who still shoot the P.M. They are still used in SOUTH AFRICA by quite a few shooters...
