Question about Mosin Nagant 91/30 Bolt
Hi everybody and thanks for taking the time to read this. I've always gotten reliable and useful advice from these forums and I'm sure this time will be no different. I disassembled my bolt for my 91/30 for the first time the other day and I noticed the firing pin would retract completely after I pulled the bolt back and locked it into place for the final time. I have that little measuring tool with the 3 notches and the screw driver piece to remove the firing pin and I know the pin is supposed to remain just shy of touching the tops of the notches, but when I pull the bolt back against the spring and rotate it that final time it is invisible and all I see is the hole for it. I just wanted to know if this was normal and if I was reassembling the bolt correctly. Thank you guys and/or girls for your assistance!
