    I'm presuming the extractors don't interchange because of the action length, right? What about the safety?

    On the M48 I have, the safety won't go all the way to the "full locked" far right position because it seems to have a disagreement with the bolt body, and I'm wary of grinding on it much.

    Will a regular k98 safety interchange with an M48 bolt, or if I have to go looking for a replacement will I have to stay confined to Yugo parts? Same question for the extractor, really (which it seems was ground on a bit by the original arsenel or the importer, so I'm wondering about just replacing anyhow).

    Actually, I'd like to know if the firing pin springs are the same.

    Maybe.

    I had the same problem with one of my m48s. I bought a couple of Mauser 98 safeties, 1 did fit but didn't fix the problem, the other did not fit. What I found that does work is if you change out the cocking piece. When I swap out the cocking piece on the m48 with the one on a 98/22, it works fine.

    Extractors- I just laid two bolts side by side. the M48 extractor looks identical to a standard M98 extractor.

    A m48 firing pin spring is about 3/4" shorter than a standard M98 spring.

    Same here. While the bolt bodies are of different lengths, the extractors look to be the same size. The only difference I see is that the K98 extractor has squared corners whereas the M48 has rounded corners. Don't see where that would make a difference.
