    Try something lighter than CLP to dissolve the crud. I use Ed's Red for most stuff and works well. Kerosene, ATF or Kroil may work. It may take some good pul to get it apart.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Have you not been able to remove the firing pin and spring?

    Is the firing pin and spring supposed to be removed before being able to remove the bolt from the sleeve? The Ross Mk.III handbook I downloaded has the bolt being removed from the bolt sleeve before the mainspring is removed from the bolt/firing pin assembly.

    The firing pin and spring remain in until the bolt head is removed.

    The bolt head should be moved around before it is fully extended.

    There should be a spot where the bolt head comes right out of the body as you twist slightly.

    Belay that -was nodding off or something!

    Since I have a bolt near at hand this time I just took it down and yes, it all comes back: there is a collar that threads into the bolt head body and retains the pin and spring.

    Bit of a b-----r to get out that collar; reminds me I had plans to bore out a screwdriver with a thick shank and slot the end to fit the collar - that or use a piece of DOM tube.

    The bolt head will turn 180° as you remove it from the bolt body; even this one was a bit of a fiddle to get out the first time.
