I am looking for the traverse bolt or cross bolt for this rifle. This as far as I know only on the Spanish version of this rifle. Any ideas out there? Mine is frozen by rust bad. Breaking screwdriver tips.

tried penetrating oil and let it sit?- breaking screwdriver tips is a sign of WRONG SCREWDRIVER
- areu using hollow ground smiths screwdrivers?
IIRC the Rolling Blocks had tapered screw heads. Many of the guns of that era did. So a tapered screwdriver may be the correct tool, but it needs to be one that fits properly.
