Question Bolt close on cartridge issue

Log in to see fewer ads
I can't seem to get to the old 5mm forums anymore. They gone now?

Running into an issue I KNOW I've seen people talk about before but can't seem to find it in google.

I've got my old 591M and I cleaned and reassembled it like I always have. But %%%%ed if I can't seem to get the bolt to close easily on even an empty case, without a hell of a lot of force. Like the inverse of a bad Mossin. The bolt closes fine when no cartridge is in it.

I know I'd seen a few messages about this _exact_ problem in the old forum years back. I recall vaguely that once it was mis-assembling the bolt and another time it was maybe ??? Extractor issues ??? Getting too old to recall.

Thoughts? I will probably take it apart again and see if I missed something in the next day or two. With all this overpriced, but new, ammo I wanted to get out there again with this thing.

Will the cartridge hand feed all the way into the chamber?
ETA~there's a sticky of bolt reassembly at the top of the 5MM page here.
If you're lucky enough to be a Yooper, you're lucky enough.

They moved my server without letting me know. It should be back up in a couple of days.

Does the left side extractor seat all the way in? It should be flush with the breech.

During cleaning, the left primary extractor- ejector may have had carbon become wedged between it and the U shaped slot which could keep the cartridge from going all the way in the chamber.
