Nah, my wife can get her own computer. She told me if I

bought one more gun she's going to leave me. Man, I'm

going to miss her...

Nothing wrong with your rifle. Some of the bolts are stiff, but they weren't meant to be babied. Slap hell out of them opening and closing, they won't mind, they are used to it. I think they may even like it. (It's a Soviet thing)

If you are having problems opening while extracting a shell, make sure that there is not dried cosmoline in the chamber. It hides in there and is difficult to see. A .20 ga. shotgun brush will generally take care of it, if that is an issure.

Add an M-1938 to your list. Since it doesn't have a bayonet weighting down the front end, it handles and balances much better. I have one that is a tack driver.

There is a guy on You tube Iraqiwarveteran he has a video on making a sticky bolt unsticky. Take a look.
