    Default Re: .22 LR Mauser not functioning properly

    If the inside of the bolt is clear of debris, gunk and others cloggy goodies, the reasons for failure are actually very few: either weak springs (they might be close to a 100 years old by now!!), or a blunt firing pin (maybe touch it up very slightly) or a worn edge of the chamber which does not allow the priming compound to be detonated.

    Try thin shims to compress the springs.

    And have a look at the extractor - is it sharp and hooked, or maybe broken?

    Is your chamber clean?

    Thanks DsJ. I have given it a another good clean and will go test it again to check. The extractor looks a little bent, so I tried to bend it back a bit. I might sharpen the firing pin as well like you suggested....We'll see. Thanks for advice
