    Hey guys, I just got a c96 broomhandle. It's mostly mechanically functional except for the fact that when you pull the bolt back, the hammer won't stay cocked unless you manually pull the hammer back all the way. It seems that there is not enough material under the bolt to push the hammer back completely, but I don't think the bolt is the problem as I have tested it out with another bolt and got the same results.

    Also if you apply slight downward pressure on the bolt while racking it, it WILL cock the hammer. There is a tiny amount of wiggle room in the bolt (I'm talking fractions of a degree) but I think that would be normal.

    Any broomhandle experts ever encounter something like this? I'm not familiar with these guns so I have no idea what would need to be replaced. The internals aren't rusted or anything, the numbers match and the whole thing seems pretty solid when assembled. I've searched to see if anyone had any similar problems but couldn't find anything like this.
