Anyone have any experience getting an older firearm repaired in NE FL (Jacksonville or St. Aug)? I am looking to use someone local but want someone trustworthy.
Thanks for your assistance.

What's wrong with it?

It is either a broken extractor or ejector. I never learned enough about it to be able to take it apart like I can with my Glocks, 1911s, or my ARs.

It chambers a round just fine, fires just fine cycles the bolt just fine then goes "click". a manual cycle of the bolt doesn't do anything and there is the spent casing right where it started.

That is why i need someplace that can work on it for me.

It's not hard to do. It's probably the extractor. http://www.civilianmarksmanship.com/detailstrip.html You can find the art at one of the gun parts places. http://www.billricca.com/m1_m14.htm Bill has them, unfortunately he has high prices. Numrich is out of stock, but you can check e-gunparts.com

All,
I finally got this thing apart and here is the bolt. It appears from this picture from http://www.surplusrifle.com that i am missing 3 parts.

Here is a picture of the front end of the bolt with the extractor, extractor spring, and extractor spring plunger missing.

This picture is of the 3 parts that I actually have.

I will look at Bill Ricca's site for the parts but other than there is there a good place to get these parts?
Thanks
