It takes a serious amount of pressure on the bolt handle to cock allowing bolt to be pushed downward. The bolts slides smoothly in receiver until the last 3/8" then needs a lot of pressure to cock and seat the bolt. Has anyone else seen this issue? Any ideals and what causes this?
Thanks

Never mind...I figured it out. It is suppose to cock on opening the bolt, not closing it. Some one jury rigged this one bad. Have to rebuild the bolt to fix it. Anyone have a bolt. For a Savage 340 they dont need?
Thanks
Mickey

hang on to the one you have. they are getting like hens teeth. may be easier to rebuild then to find another one.
they show up on ebay once in a while. if you have good equity in your house you may be able to cover what those bandits want for one.

Hell of it is....its not mine but my BIL. He knows squat about guns past shooting them. I was intrigued by it as that's just me. It can be a good little shooter if I can find the parts.

Once I get it fixed.....hell probably sell it and make a 3-4 hundred dollar profit since "family" does not charge for personal work....Haha.

Numrich has bolts. I order one for an early model 340, they sent one for a 340 E. Just returned it to them.

It showed out of stock when I ordered, but that's the one they sent.
