I took my Mosin Nagant out to the range today and I noticed that the more I shot, the more it took to work the bolt and finally eject the casing. At one point I managed to bend my refinished bolt handle out of place so I couldn't get the handle past my scope. Now I've always had a slight problem with the rough action but it seems to get progressively worse. I plan on breaking down the entire bolt tonight, let it bathe in some paint thinner to potentially remove grease, inspect the spring, and lube it up nice and well. Do you guys have any suggestions?
