I purchased a M77VT and need your help.
The extractor does not pop up when the bolt is opened.
I removed the stock and it works fine when the action is not in the stock.
Where do I look for the problem?
Hairtrigger, What exactly do you mean, "the extractor does not pop up"? On the Model 77, The extractor stays to the right as the bolt rotates to the left for loading. This is the "normal" operation for the Model 77. The bolt rotates through the "extractor ring" leaving the extractor to the "right". It's a "push" feed system like the Mausers. As the cartridge is pushed forward by the bolt face, at a certain point, the "follower" rotates the cartridge upward to "slip" under the extractor hook just prior to chambering................Dick
