Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I'm looking for an extractor and extractor spring for a G98/40 does anyone know of a place to possibly find these parts?

IMHO .ABOUT the only way is to buy a sported out one and strip it off the bolt . OR get one made

Parts are non existent on rare rifles. You have a machinist make one if you have old parts as a pattern, or you buy another average rifle with prices ranging from $400 - 900. A nice example can run 1500-3000.

This will be an expensive endeavor, unless he or she is a friend. These German marked 98/40s or the Hungarian early model 35 are a hard find. Especially one in nice condition. I see one every two or three years at gun shows in WI. Maybe a sporter that was chopped up or one with a sewer pipe bore or refinished/ badly cracked stock example to keep the price down. Buy the dog and keep it as a parts source. Parts have dried up about 10-15 years ago for most rifles. You buy a dog second rifle for parts and consider it as a sort of "parts on a stick supply". Best place that had odd ball stuff was Springfield Sporters and it closed. It may reopen, it may not.
Actually it sounds like you got your parts rifle, now buy a nice complete one to shoot. Is your refinished, countered bored, cracked stock, does it headspace???

That mannlicher bolt is an odd ball. If you have the luck of the Irish, maybe you can find a complete bolt for $100-300 on flee bay in the next 5 years. Numrich lists parts, but is always out on rare rifles. https://forums.gunboards.com/showthread ... -bolt-head
SEE my message to you.
To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.
