    I've managed to take apart the bolt to my Sako Forester, L579 action. I cannot get it back together again. Any tips or pointers would be appreciated. I took it apart without unscrewing any screws. I'm not sure if that was the proper way to do

    i took my finnbear bolt apart and had trouble to get it back together, i found that i had to apply pressure to the back of the bolt as i turned it to relieve the spring pressure,bearhunter

    This is from Frank de Haas's book:
    "Reassembling the firing mechanism is not easily done because the very stiff mainspring must be compressed. After inserting the bolt sleeve partly in the bolt, grasp the bolt firmly in one hand and the bolt sleeve between the thumb and crooked forefinger of the other hand, and being ready to turn it counter-clockwise; with the edge of the bolt sleeve held against the edge of a work bench or hardwood block held in a vice, depress the bolt sleeve into the bolt to full depth, or until it can be turned to lock it. After this, turn the bolt sleeve COUNTER CLOCKWISE until the cocking piece falls into the shallow full-cock notch in the rear of the bolt."

    Hope this does the job

    Cheers
