Jarmann Bolt stripping. (Information)
This is my first post even though I have many blackpowder guns including Winchesters, British military including a Whitworth, as well as blackpowder revolvers (Webley, Remington, Daws etc). I have just bought a Jarmann 1883 Trials rifle (Kopatchek type magazine) and am struggling to figure out how to strip the bolt from the receiver. I have pushed and pulled everything I can think of to no avail. Can anyone help with a hint please. I also struggled for a while with an 1883 Hotchkiss - so there might be something about the year.
