New 457 trouble



Log in to see fewer ads
Just picked up my new MTR today. Awesome rifle...but I can't get the bolt to go in. The firing pin is not cocked which is what is holding it up I believe. This is my first CZ so I could be doing something wrong. Any advice would be great. Any advice on what I'm doing wrong or how to get it cocked by hand would be great.

Cock the bolt and it will slide right in. Hope it shoots great for you. I grab the bolt by holding the front part and rotating the bolt handle until it's cocked. I sometimes use a cloth to hold the fron of the bolt . They're kind of small and slippery.

Thank you! I was afraid to break something so I hadnt really put much into it. Didnt take much at all.

My brother had the same thing with his AT-One. Called me up pissed off cause he couldn’t get the bolt in the action. Went over and rotated the bolt handle 60* and bam. Slide right it

Are these being shipped this way? If so, to unload the FP spring for extended periods maybe?
