Mauser 93 Bolt Disassembly Problem


I am new to the group and hoping to get some info on a newly acquired Mauser 93....or so I think it is. I have seen numerous videos on how to disassemble the bolt for cleaning on the 93 mauser, however this bolt does not want to obey the "rules"....

The bolt appears to have an aftermarket safety on it that does not have a straight up position. When I cock the bolt and then try to remove the bolt with the safety on, it simply decocks before opening. I can put the safety in an upright position by pulling the striker back farther and moving it into the straight up position, but then the bolt will not open.

I have read many stories about NOT taking the bolt apart if it is not cocked. I do know the back of the bolt does look like it will unscrew with it uncocked. I just did not try to completely remove it for fear of screwing something up.

So, what is the trick to getting the bolt apart for cleaning with an aftermarket safety. Here are some picts....
