    Hello, All. I'm new to this forum, spending most of my time at sigsauer. This looks like a teriffic place, so here goes:

    I purchased my first bolt action rifle on Friday and tried to put the bolt into it today. It's a CZ 527 in 22 Hornet and no matter how gently I tried, I couldn't get the bolt into the receiver. I looked at the instuctional pictures in the manual and tried unscrewing the back of the bolt, thinking that might help me figure how to insert the bolt. The bolt handle fell off and now I can't put the bolt and handle back together.

    I'd at least like to get the bolt put back together properly. I've searched all over the internet but can't find the info I need. Can someone here help?

    Many thanks

    Call 1-800-955-4486, and the guys in gunsmithing will walk you right through it. I had one part turned upside down in mine and the safety wouldn't engage.
    The bolt handle is almost held in by friction - do you still have your manual?

    Here's what the manual says, dis assembly, and reassembly,

    Thanks a lot, armoredman. I do still have the manual and I guess that I didn't concentrate on the section that you refer to. It seemed like I was going to have to apply longitudinal pressure to the bolt in order to get it back together.

    I really do appreciate your response to my question. I'll use the phone number that you posted and then let you know how I make out.

    I hope that you have a good day.

    armoredman,

    Thanks again for your help. The phone number that you gave me did the trick. A fellow named Neale, phoned me back in about 10 minutes and we found that the bolt was no longer cocked. The bolt inserted properly after it was cocked.

    This is my first "manual" bolt action firearm and I've already learned an important lesson.

    Take care, and be well

    Little late to be of any use, but happy to hear that you have everything sorted. Anyway, welcome to THR!

    :)

    this thread is several months old but i got a chuckle from this. i bought the same gun and had the same issue, cocking the bolt fixed it right up. i knew i assembled it right !! good stuff:rolleyes:
