Default Sticky Bolt

I have a Springfield/Savage 120A in horrible condition. I picked it up at the local gun shop used for $40 a few weeks ago. It is going to be my refinishing project. I am doing the long cleaning process as it does not appear to have ever seen a cleaning brush before. The bolt is tough to pull. I tried cleaning all the gunk out and it doesn't seem to have helped it much. If it sits for more than an hour the first two times working the bolt are very difficult and then it becomes a lot easier. Does anyone know what I may be missing that could be causing this? Not too worried. I'm just hoping to refinish but was hoping to get lucky and get a cheap plinker out of it, too. Any ideas?
