Remington 770 Bolt Action too tight!
I've read a lot about this online pertaining to a Remington 770 Bolt Action Rifle.
I purchased one in July 2012. Although I haven't fired it yet I've noticed that out of all the Bolt Action Rifles I own, the Remington Bolt seems to be way too tight..... I don't know if I need to clean off all the oiling & with it dry, just play with it till it loosens up a bit or keep oiling it & try working with it that way....
If anyone has had the same problem, please let me know how you were able to get it to act right. I mean even the 1942 Mosin M91/30 I picked up for my Birthday in August has such a smooth Bolt, you hardly have to pull on it. It slides really easy. Now I'm sure it's partially because it's probably a used rifle but even so [but you'd never know because it looks almost new!], they did make sure that they were all in working order [One salesman bought two & told me that the only reason he got them was because they were carefully checked out prior to selling them.
Anyways back to my Remington, there has to be a way to loosen up the Bolt Action.... Help!!! & Thanks in advance, Dan
