I disassembled and reassembled my savage 10 bolt for a deep cleaning and now the action is really heavy and, for lack of a better word, chunky.
Now, by virtue of being a savage, it never had the lightest, smoothest action in the world but it seems a lot worse now. I'd estimate the lift weight to be more than 10lbs and I can feel every minute stage of every moving part.
I had a good amount of difficulty with the firing pin spring. Is it possible that I have it set too tight or too loose? Are there any easy fixes for this? I've read a few articles on bolt lift kits using a .38 casing and a ball bearing but I was never quite sure where the thing went in the bolt
