I had to remove the drop floorplate from my Maiser 1898 to clean out some gunk that had got it. I am now struggling to get it to slide back into place and curious if anyone can offer any tips or advice. This is the first time this plate has been removed as the rifle only has 2 boxes of ammo through it.
Unfortunatey due to some storage issues gunk got it and I had to strip it to ensure it was properly cleaned.
Ant advise is appreciated
