Picked up the rifle the other day. It's in excellent shape. Makes you wonder how much it was used, or if it was the owner took awfully good care of it.
I haven't had a chance to fire it yet, but tested the action with a dummy round. Ejector worked fine. Action seemed very stiff when locking down the bolt after pushing it forward. This was only the case when the dummy round was in the chamber--empty, the action worked just fine. May be a problem for a boy, took a bit of strength to push down the bolt, any suggestions about how to remedy this?
I guess I'll start with a cleaning and oiling (not that it needs it, from appearances, but couldn't hurt and will help familiarize me with it more).
Maybe the dummy round (it was a blue A-Zoom brand aluminum type) is causing that.
Only other issue is the trigger pull is pretty stiff, but I kind of expected that. Can I remedy that also? Not that I want it too light, but it takes quite a hard squeeze to make it break.
Thanks for all the tips.
