Did you just get the gun? Did it come with the bolt stuck?
It's my friends rifle. He doesn't have internet right now so I'm trying to help him out.
He got the rifle from the bottom of a river. A person that he knows had been shooting from the riverbank and dropped the rifle. He thought the rifle was gone for good but my friend went there the next morning and pulled the rifle out of the river bottom.
He took the rifle home and cleaned it up; the bolt worked fine at this time, but ceased to function (got stuck) when he was cycling the action afterwards.
The bolt does have a little bit of wiggle room as the bolt handle can be moved up and down slightly (a couple of milimeters).
