Default Springfield M1922/M2 .22 bolt disassembly/assembly diagram?

I have a balky M2 modified M1922 Springfield .22. It refuses to fire about 3 out of 4 shots.

The problem is disassembling and assembling the bolt. Although I can practically disassemble/assemble a M1903 bolt blindfolded, assembling a M1922 teaches me new ways to criticize whomever came up with this bolt!

Is there a instruction manual, set of instructions or diagram to put this thing back together?

Rick, I don't have TM 9-280 1944 Caliber .22 Rifles but there are a couple of schematics on pps 277 and 282 in Brophy's '03 book. Good luck....

Look for TM9_280_1944.pdf online. TM 9-280, War Dept. training manual.

I remember that once I adjusted the headspace to the correct spec, no misfires. Some bolts have a set screw on the outside to adjust the headspace

Worth checking if I can get the $%&%$# bolt parts back together. Thanks!

Hi Rick,
If you have not received assistance, maybe this will help
To reassemble the M2 Bolt:
1. Take the firing pin and slip the firing pin spring over the firing pin rod
2. Insert the threaded end of the firing pin rod into the bolt sleeve. The firing pin is asymmetrical so the firing pin must be on top. The firing pin striker must be at the top of the sleeve.
3. Insert the firing pin into a hole and push down the sleeve until the rear of the pin comes through the sleeve. The rod is flat sided
4, Place the cocking piece assembly on with the cocking cam facing forward,
5. Compress the bolt sleeve down until the threads are exposed.
6. Screw the firing pin nut onto the firing pin. Insure that the nut is screwed all the way.
7. Push the firing pin down until the safety can be engaged; engage the safety.
8. Screw the firing pin assembly into the bolt handle all the way.
9. Back the assembly out until the bolt head can be slipped on to the bolt handle.
10. Rotate the bolt sleeve assembly until the bolt sleeve latches.
11. Insert the bolt into the receiver and close the bolt
12. Disengage the safety
I can send pictures if required. Hope this helps
FWIW

Thanks - the bolt is not completely apart, just in the 3 sections.

That is an easy one.
Set the safety on the Bolt Sleeve Assy to the safe position. Screw the bolt sleeve asssy into the handle almost all the way. Push the head onto the handle until there is no gap between the handle and the head. Rotate the whole Assy until the bolt latch engages. That should do it.
Hope this helps.

Thanks! That seems to do the trick. Admittedly, the headspace set screw on my bolt is covered by a brass cover so I don't seem to be able to adjust it. The misfires continue, so looks like I'll have to seek out a gunsmith.
