The original safety apparently was replaced with an after market one. It will not allow me to place the safety in the 90 degree position in order to disassemble the bolt after removal. any hints?

Commercial bolts have hole in the cocking piece , .But if he didn't drill one, the option is to hook the that piece on a some wood and pull the bolt exposing the firing pin and put a washer that you have slotted or even a dime in the gap.

I believe there are some videos on YouTube of disassembling a bolt with a Buehler-type safety. The words above are good but some visuals may help you too.

This^^^^, if it doesn't have the hole. I've run into many commercial 98s that don't.

I usually use the edge of my work-bench top--one reason it's kind of dented here are there. A penny will generally work as well as a dime.

The above is a link to the disassembling a bolt with a Buehler-type safety.

Mule Deer -- I use the the edge of my work bench also, but fortunately I put on a medal-edged trim when I used stick um down floor tiles to cover the plywood top of the workbench. It has saved me from destroying the edge of that workbench many times in the last 20 years! smile

Good idea--but I really don't care about the edge of my bench! Partly because I don't take apart Buehler-type safety Mauer bolts as often as I used to.....

I use pennies and the edge of the bench for 700s as well as mausers and a few others. I always leave a few pennies laying on the corner of my bench. Blows my mind when some newbie can’t understand they are tools of the trade.
