Steyr M1895 straight pull problem
I bought a M1895 straight pull rifle a while back. The exterior is in good condition but the bore is black and pitted. It shoots ok. The problem is that one day I was cleaning it and cycled the bolt back, a bit too hard I guess, and it came right out. I was able to put it back in without any problem, but it works stiffer now. I am wondering, did I ding something up when slamming it back too hard? I can find nothing wrong with it, so it is a bit puzzling. Any suggestions? Thanks.
