The bolt on my 710 is not fitting back in the chamber. On the back of the bolt there is a cover with a lip that locks the bolt into the grove. the cover is turned, so now the lip wont fit into the groove. What do you think. I kinda need it fixed by tomorrow. I like about 15 minutes from bass pro, do you think i should have their gunsmith look at it?

Take it to a gunsmith. Though, most likely, the gunsmith won't be able to fix it today. Every gunsmith in my area is currently backed up multiple weeks/months. Also, if he needs parts for the 710, he most likely won't have them. They are not very popular rifles, and when there is a problem with them they are usually trashed.

Thank you. I got it fixed now. I took it to my gunsmith and he looked at the bolt and used some to tool to simulate a dry fire and it popped the fireing pin back in place and all was well again.

Thank you for your help once again.
