Swedish Mauser: need parts...

My father has a Swedish Mauser and the first round in will not stay in the rifle. You put two in and its fine, but as soon as you chamber that one and extract the cartridge(when it extracts, which he needs a new extractor as well) the round will pop out. Will a new follower solve this problem?

Maybe. If someone put in their version of a single-shot follower or a wrong or whittled on follower- that will work. But, if someone removed metal from the bottom of the receiver that acts as feed lips- then you'll have some more seriouser issues.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.
