Heres one That I need help with.
I was in my Grandfathers basement and he was showing me his mauser model 98. It has some issues from being in the basement for too long. the bolt is seized up and wont move. Also it has a round chambered. Any suggestions on how to free it up? I would really like to get it working again.

what position is the wing safety on the bolt in- far left is ready to fire, middle allows the bolt to open and close without the firing pin active, and far right locks the bolt down , but it can't fire- other than that, think i'd take it to a smith- maybe a littil oil to see if you can't get the safety to move- once you get the safety to move, then you can move the bolt, and you're home free- anyting more,i'd be smith bound- chances of a a/d are too high
