    So you are saying that without a firing pin assembly that the bolt still cams hard? If that is the case then you have an interference condition somewhere..........

    I would back out the action screws and try without the firing pin, then drop off the trigger and try. One thing I have seen is that, if you just changed scope mounts, a mount screw just slightly too long can do that.

    Was dinking around and backed out the front guard screw. Presto, problem fixed. Action now as smooth as a baby's bottom. A couple months ago R G made note that on one of my rifles the action was loose in the stock. So after I got home I checked the rest of my rifles for barrel-forearm clearance and guard screw tightness. One was a wee bit loose and this one was probably it. I note that the screw had been shortened previously by the gent who fit the stock. Guess I need to grind it down a bit more.

    Thanks for all of the input.

    Glad to hear it was something that simple. My assumption on these deals is that the simple things have already been looked at..... -Al

    A kid out here that spends time at my house (with my kids) was out back wheelin' a while back..... he got into some fairly deep oopsies and killed the motor in a deep puddle. It's fire a liddle, clunk, sputter, over-rev and rattle to a stop....

    Obvious assumption was he'd sucked water.

    Over a month later,

    about 10 backyard rednecks later,

    several actual mechanics later.......

    His dad, a 40yr professional mobile mechanic and millwright went out one night and DUMPED SOME GAS IN IT.......

    VROOOM VROOOOM fired right up. Course you'd expect him to know it was low on fuel, no? Did they have to come out with a front end loader and do a "dramatic" rescue?

    another truck pulled him 3/4 mile home to my shop backwards..... he felt it was dramatic LOL

    Then they trailered it home....

    All because he didn't check the most basic thing

    The gentleman who fit the stock is pretty meticulous, but I expect that he torqued the screw just snug. I snugged it a bit more which apparently was just enough to cause contact. Anyway a few strokes with a file Fixed R Up.

    diff

    Check the scope mount BASE screws on the front and rear.
    they could be too long and be putting drag on the bolt.
    it's and easy fix.
