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.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.

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../bolts were only numbered during refurbishment.
