Should have mentioned it on the phone yesterday-
Sarco part#BAR028 ruptured case extractor (30.06) $7.50
Listed under B.A.R. parts but should work same same. ( I think, anyway. I have seen pictures of some with a lever gizmo on them, Sarco shows no picture on the site, but check the SGN ad.)
Apex had them at one time also.[/QUOTE
If you have a standard ruptured cartridge removal tool it should slip down into the T-slot and be aligned with the chamber with the bolt retracted, let the bolt run forward gently until the last inch or so release the bolt so it snaps into the locked up position, pull the handle back sharply it should remove the what's left of the cartridge. Then lock the bolt rearward and push the cartridge down out the bottom of the bolt. Watch your fingers for forward bolt movement Some of the removal tools are for both the Cal .30 and the 7.62.
The other (L) type is called the Mk. IV with it you lock the bolt back place the business end in the ruptured cartridge with the handle thru the top of the casing push the extractor firmly into the case and pull back on the handle. I think it was made specificaly for the 1917 & 1919.
I have never needed a ruptured cartridge tool, probably because I had one with me. Numerich has the Mk. IV thats where I got mine NOS in original packaging.
