View Full Version : M1 Gaurand in need of repair in NE FL
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
Thanks for the links. Now we will see if I can follow directions and get this thing apart. If I get hung up I will post and beg for assistance.
See the link below for bolt disasembly
Get parts from Bill Ricca,......the parts on Numerich are not surplus mil spec
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?
