    bolt problem

    i was just cleaning my sako AII forester and all of my other guns for that matter and i was fiddling about with the bolt unitentionally whilst i was watching telly looking for something or something and i must have twisted the back of the bolt round to where it locks in with the rest of it (if it was in the gun it would be closed) and the pin fired. i can't get it back/recock it and it wont fit back into my rifle. please help.

    You will need the aid of something like a wooden fence post, hold the bolt with both hands & draw downwards against the rear locking lug, this will re-cock your bolt.

    I omitted to say that you will need to rotate the bolt body slightly as you draw down.

    It's the straight rib bit under the rear end , nearest your shoulder when located in the rifles action.

    hi , wrap the breech end in a wrag , then crimp it in a vice and then twist the handle end as if you were going to unload the rife and it should uncocks itself ! it might be easy or it could be quite tight but ** i hold no responceabilty for you damaging you bolt **

    ive got a tikka and done it several times !

    cheers lee
