New member with bolt issue.



Log in to see fewer ads
First I want to say hello to all and glad there is a forum like this.

I inherited a few .22 rifles from my father and have begun to go through them for my children to enjoy. I have a Ranger model 103-2. My research has shown its is the same as a Marlin 80 or 81. It is bolt action with a clip. I have replace one side of the extractor (old style with 2 separate extractors) along with the extractor spring loop that slides along the bottom of the bolt. The bolt was filthy so I took it apart but unfortunaly, YouTube sent me astray. Maybe one of you fine members can help me out.

On the rear of the bolt there is a small screw you remove to get the spring loaded knob rod out of the rear of the bolt carrier. When I removed the little screw, I knew I was in trouble then the preloaded spring slid the collar out about 1/4"

My problem:
How do you compress the spring to get the collar hole with threads into the bolt carrier to line up with the bolt carrier bolt hole to re install the tiny screw.

Note. I did not remove the pin that holds the knob on the very back of this spring loaded piece.

Sorry so long. I like to be detailed and paint a picture.

Any help appreciated.

The collar that has the threads in it is called the striker sleeve. While under spring tension, I can't align the screw hole with the rear of the bolt carrier.

It should be doable, but takes two, one to hold the spring under compression while the other puts in the small screw. The spring isn't that powerful, so for us it was a snap. I would also recommend replacing that small spring that holds the firing pin back, while you have it apart. That was the reason I was taking mine apart in the first place.

Good Luck

Henry88. Thanks for the useful information. Being you have been in my shoes, how does the second person compress the spring? There is only a small window in the ejecting port to mess with the spring.

I had the same issue, and removed the pin holding the extractor head/firing pin. That allows the collar to slide down, install the screw, then reinstall the extractor and carefully realign pin and drive home carefully.
