    Hi Greg


    Sorry mate you have been sold a dud rifle. It won't be repairable. It would be best to dispose of it at the address below as it could be unsafe.

    Topgear Rifle Safety Return Depot
    461 Riihimaki Drive
    TX 78620

    I've sent you some more details on how to return the rifle in a PM.

    Cheers John

    P.S. Welcome to the forum

    That's a great rifle to inherit :cool: When you get the bolt re-cocked please post up some photo's of the rifle. We would all love to see the bee!

    If you have been following my posts you already know that I have a bolt with a similar problem. For the time being at least I am going to resist the temptation to disassemble the bolt with hammer and punch in hand. I'm going to soak the thing in penetrating oil to see if that will free up the safety and if not I think I will opt to leave well enough alone. At least for the time being.

    Well I soaked the bolt down with my favorite stuff Corrosion X for guns and overnight the bolt rotated and safety operates perfect.
