The M98 design is centered around a bolt with two front lugs and a large non-rotating claw extractor that takes hold of a cartridge as it leaves the magazine and holds it firmly until the cartridge strikes the receiver-mounted ejector blade and is ejected from the action providing a true controlled feed. The 98 design also incorporates a third lug, set at the rear, that acts as a safety lug in the event of a catastrophic ammunition failure. At no time during the feeding, firing or extraction of the cartridge the claw relinquish its grip on the case rim resulting in no failed extracts and reduced jams.
