M1917 Bolt Stuck
I took apart an cleaned my 1918 Eddystone, and I put it back together and now the bolt won't cycle easily. To get it to cycle, I have to force it open (not the best idea) and after that it cycles properly until I de-cock it, then the problem pops back up. Any ideas or help? Thanks

Did you take the bolt apart? You sure you put it back together right?

I didn't take the bolt apart, just the rifle itself

Notice any difference in the trigger pull?

Sounds like the safety is dragging to me...............

No trigger pull is normal. I'll spend a few hours in it later
