i too have one of those Rem. M-24, S/N XXXX, i got it and 9 other guns that were stacked in a corner of a "trailer home" that caught fire, i bought those guns from a friend who lost his father in the fire.
the forearm was a little scorched (?) it was a well used little rifle, the problem it has is that the extractor falls out after several shots, that little doodad plunger (?) that keeps the extractor in place is worn, if anyone has a schematic please post it or the URL to it, i liked shooting it but can not due to that part falling out.., can anyone help me get this rifle back into shooting condition ?
I FOUND IT !!!
