    Need help removing a 03A3 bolt.

    Not having a good day. Just incorrectly posted on the Q&A Milsurp forum. Today I cleaned my 03A3 and had my head you know where when I reassembled it. I installed the bolt with the extractor in the 12 o’clock position instead of the 3 o’clock position. The bolt didn’t go all the way in but I cannot get it back out. Can anyone help me? Thanks

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.

    Is the extractor collar hanging up on the ejector? Might try slipping in a thin feeler gauge in to help slip it past.

    I'm having difficulty picturing where the bolt is hanging up. Can you post a picture or describe in detail where the bolt is hanging up when you try to extract it?
