Hi,

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.

Thanks Oyvind,

I will eventually find out how the sight works. Perhaps there is somewhere a "Big Boy's Book of Bolt Removal" !!! I knew it had to be easy, but as yet I had not paid much attention to the extractor end, apart from noting that it was a bit on the large side. Dies and 348 Win cases next. I have a good bullet that I use in my 40/60 Winchester and I will give that a try (the cartridges must be ballistically very similar.)

Thanks again for your prompt reply.

Let us know the info on the bullet you are using, it seems to be the hardest part of reloading for the Jarmann.

Will do once I give them a try, Slugged the bore at .407 and bullets are .408 so they should be just about perfect. Need to get the brass first and 348 Win is getting a bit scarce.

I'm going to try some .409", looks like the maximum I can load after measuring some fireformed Bertram cases.
