The penny idea worked perfectly....thanks. I tried it this morning and the bolt came apart just fine, although in need of a lot of cleaning. Will spend some time cleaning it up and then it should be in good shape again.

As a side note, I do not know the history of this rifle. It appears to be in very good shape other than a couple light areas of pitting on the outside of the barrel and receiver. Should there be any reservations to shooting the rifle??....the bolt seems to be lock in tight when closed. The bore appears in really good shape with no visible blemishes.

Am also trying to get an idea what kind of Mauser this thing is as the markings are very sparse and it has been sporterised by someone in the past, although would it be better to open a new thread for identifying the gun?? I have a few pictures I can share...
