    I just got an lrpv. I cant seem to get the bolt to go all the way in though. It goes almost all the way in and the little black knob on the top of the bolt hits the receiver. I can push and there is some spring tension there, but I don't want to force it. It's about a half inch from getting to the point where I could turn the bolt down. I own several remington bolt guns, and honestly I'm a pretty experienced shooter, so I feel kinda dumb asking this. Any help would be appreciated

    Are you trying to chamber a round? If so, the shoulder may need bumping back (reload) If factory ammo, or no ammo:confused:

    If the round button on the bolt is at the 12 o clock position when the bolt is inserted the bolt isnt cocked. You need to cock the bolt by pushing the button over through the slot. There is alot of pressure on it and a vise will help with this.When the bolt is in the cocked position the button will line up with the ways in the action.

    I hope this helps.....

    yes that seems to be what is happening. Not at home at the moment to try it but that sounds like my issue. Kinda strange you'd need a vice just to put your bolt in your new, and also that they don't really tell you this.
    Thanks!

    Well you dont have to have a vise, it does make it easier though. Here are a couple pics of what I believe is your problem.

    The firing pin isnt coked in this picture as evidenced by the position of the button and it prevents the bolt for going completely into the reciever.

    This shows the position of the button when the bolt is cocked.

    This is a simple matter and with pictures it's easier to help explain, it might help others understand too.
