Bolt stuck



Log in to see fewer ads
Took my T1x out of the KRG bravo and then reassembled it. The bolt handle will go up but not back. When I take it back out of the Bravo I can actuate the bolt and remove it. The bolt isn’t binding but it isn’t as smooth as it normally is either. If I assemble the receiver to the stock the bolt will go in far enough for the bolt release button to engage but something is keeping it from going forward.

I am sure something is out of alignment but not sure what.

My guess would be the rear action screw is too long or simply overtightened.

Did you use the KRG rear action screw?

Almost for sure the rear action screw in impinging on the bottom of the bolt. Easy to check -- back it out a bit and work the bolt. If that's the problem, change to a slightly shorter bolt or shorten the one you've ben using. (A bench grinder can be used to shorten it just a small amount at a time.) I'm not familiar with the Bravo stock but apparently it's supplied with a rear action screw, so just use it. Even that one may need to be shortened a bit for your particular rifle.

thanks, it was the washer on the rear action screw which had fallen off when I took it out of the chassis. Allowed the screw to travel up too far.

So the action screw was the problem, but a quick and easy fix.
