    I am interested in getting a Yugo M24/47. I saw one at a gun show recently that when I pulled the bolt back, it became really loose (sloppy)as if it'd fall out (it didn't). My point of reference is the action of the bolt on a Mosin-Nagant 1891/30. The bolt operates "snug" and stays that way. My question is, should the M24/47 bolt have that same "snugness" throughout it's operation? Or is the Mauser bolt loose when fully open? Also, where should I go to get a Yugo M24/47?

    They are generally all loose like that. The MN has a full length guide that goes to the full rear. Mauser actions like the Yugo have no support when fully opened but lock nice and tight when closed. Heck I got some new remingtons that are loose when full open.

    They were originally military rifles that would be subjected to harsh conditions. Mud, dirt etc would jam up a tighter bolt - receiver set up.
