Please don't tell me that Hank. I don't want to have to get rid of this rifle.

I would like to report that I have sccessfully disassembled the bolt, cleaned it and put it back together without losing anything and it actually works. There was a fair amout of crud in the channel that the main firing pin body runs and a significant amount of crud in the actual pin channel. After a lot fo scrubbing and picking with little patches, q-tips and other items that are a pain for an old pair of hands had to deal with I got it cleaned. I may have added to the frequency of the problem by putting a little bit of oil on everything and then wiping it all down with a clean, dry cloth so maybe it won't gum up too badly. Did that more for rust prevention than anything but will add cleaning the bolt as a regularly occurring maintenance item. Thanks for the suggstions as I would have never thought of that.

I will be looking for your next range report to see if the bolt cleaning cured your problem. One thing you might consider is using Hornady One shot Cleaner and Lube instead of oil on/in your bolt. It cleans and serves as a dry lube. It keeps my 10/22 rifles running flawlessly and we know those rifles are inherently very dirty. As a dry lube, it will not collect crud in your bolt or action. Just something for you to consider, Lee. Hope you were able to solve your problem.

I leave the firing pin channel as dry as possible after cleaning. Before a hunt, I sometimes use canned air blaster to blow out the bolt.
