Have Spanish Mauser 98.  Bolt is operational.  Safety, however, is stuck and won't flip to the other two positions when cocked.  Also, cannot cocked when bolt sleeve is screwed all way tight.  Have to back off one turn so bolt cocks.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks  Rick

The safety won't work unless the cocking piece is in the correct position.It won't work unless  the bolt sleeve is screwed in all the way.Do you have the original Spanish bolt?It seems you have the wrong cocking piece.
