To remove the extractor, turn it until it is on the bottom of the bolt, then push down on the thin part toward the rear to raise the front, and push it forward. I strongly recommend that you NOT remove the extractor collar or it may never go back in right again.

To disassemble the firing pin assembly - with the firing pin out of the bolt, pull back on the firing pin sleeve and turn it 1/4 turn in either direction. Keep control of the sleeve and spring as the spring comes free. (A later version uses a "U" washer for the same purpose, so you might find that instead of the firing pin sleeve.)

To remove the firing pin from the bolt sleeve, you need to have the safety in the off position and then unscrew the firing pin stop screw, a long screw that goes through the bolt sleeve. With that out, you can pull the firing pin and cocking piece out to the rear.
