91/30 possible bolt problem


Recommended Posts

fair warning im a n00b and this is my first rifle.

So i was cleaning ye' ole' 91/30 and i was trying to get in to all of those lil' grooves and channels in the bolt. and some how i got the bolt head to come off. i figured out the rubic's cube, i got the bolt head back on. but now the bolt don't feel as secure when you close it. its almost floppy, sorta. with the bolt closed forward and aft the bolt is tight and secure like it should be. but when you lift up on the bold handle to open, it seemes to open kinda easy.

so what did i do and how do i fix it?

Broke it? You may very well have "fixed" it. Those things are notorious for having chambers and bolt parts with multiple layers of tempered cosmoline that make things hard to move.

Have fun, and buy some light ball. :D
