The Springfield 03 is cock on open and the Enfield is cock on close. Cock on open has a heavy bolt lift, cock onclose, not so much. In all the threads I read, I seldom hear if the new rifles, 6mm anything et. al., are cock on open or close. Bolt lift is discussed in relation to headspece/shoulder bump, but I don't hear about when firing mechanism is installed and it is cocked. Granted, my Anschutz .22, is a forefinger lift and close, but my 03-A3 is really a heavy lift. I have no other rifles to compare to, so I don't know. What should it be like?
