My action feels rough and a bit of sticking when cycling. It's been completely cleaned and still does it. Anyone else have this issue and how did you resolve it?

That is very common with Bulgarian refurbished rifles. The tail of the extractor is worn down which makes the bolt head want to snap closed. So it's stiff because the bolt head/lugs are dragging along the rails.

Nothing you can do. It's just how it is.

True statement, these are old, hard used guns. Grease it liberally, it usually helps.

Would it still be that way if it's not refurbished? I'm thinking it's all original since it appears to be all matching. It did make it to the 8x56r conversion. Steyr make.

It might be 'all matching', but it is still old and well used. Besides, bolts were only numbered during refurbishment. You have no idea if the bolt was the original with the gun, whether it is serialed or not.

I would disagree with this. Bulgarians numbered the bolts from the moment they issued the rifle. I have original non-refurbished Bulgarian guns with numbered bolts to match the receiver. The bolt heads were also numbered, not just the bolt body../
