    And I quote from:
    "Description and Rules for the Management of the U. S. Magazine Rifle, Model 1898, and Magazine Carbine, Model 1899"

    "Take bolt in right hand and introduce it into the receiver, keeping the extractor lifted with the right thumb. Turn bolt to right and at the same time press strongly with first finger (of right hand) against right side of extractor."

    Hope this helps,
