Hi guys,
I dropped my T3 bolt and didn't relaise until today when I tried to load my rifle that it seems to be locked in the cocked position. Any idea how to release it or is it a gunsmith job?

Looks like I dropped it on the plastic end as there is a little scuff on the corner,

Cheers,

Stratts

Put the bolt into the rifle upside down and then pull the bolt handle around until it goes back into the correct place.

You've decocked it Stratts, you need to recock it to get it in the rifle. Quite easy when you know how, give rusty gate your number and I'm sure that he will talk you through it. Or else look it up on You-tube.

Put the sear in a vise and turn the bolt using the handle, it will recock as easy as pie..turning by hand can be bloody hard work with some bolts

You can also push the sear out with a wood block or wide flat head screwdriver and when out enough, turn
