    Gunsmith/Armorer in Southern NY?

    Need help with locked rollers on my CETME? Broke the BCG down, cleaned it & put it back together, rollers still locked. Can not re-assemble the rifle.

    Anyone in the area or know anyone that can help?

    Thank you

    Have you pushed the bolt head forward?

    You can use a thin flathead screwdriver to wedge the bolt head forward or put the bolt carrier in the reciever backwards with a quick slap

    Flip the carrier around and insert it into the receiver so the bolt head is last. Drop it in and the rollers will push inward when they contact the receiver and the bolt head will pop out.

    OK, took some doing, but got it in reversed. Head did NOT pop open, rollers still stuck.

    Now what?

    Tried that, but how much pressure should I use.Pried with SD, didn't budge.

    Was easier to just post a video. You made me get my Cetme out of the safe for the first time in 2 years.

    In those moments where you're not quite sure if the undead are really dead, dead, don't get all stingy with your bullets.

    So many people have trouble with this(understandably). The correct way is to rotate the bolt until unlocked and then ride the locking lever up the bolt head ridge until in position....pull out on bolt head , rollers will go in. This is a less forcefull way and the proper reassembly technique. I have an old post about this if I can find it. Search time.

    Ok...it does take some hand strength but is how it's done in the field. On post 33 , I have a picture showing the ledge that the lever should ride up. It's good to know this method for all DRL guns. Good luck. http://www.militaryfirearm.com/Forum...olt+reassembly
