Hey ya'll I bought a mosin nagant 91/30 a few months back put about a 100 or so rounds through it, now when I load it with all five rounds either by hand or with a stripper clip, the bolt wont close, keeps pushing the top bullet nose down :confused: any idea what might be causing this? worn out leaf spring?
Any help is appriciated, I love this ol' gal and I want her to function, can't take 'er out shootin' if she ain't workin':(

nope, no spare parts, but chazz's idea rim over rim seemed to work, guess i was just loading it wrong?

I did notice though that the mag design is rather simple, and the follower seems a bit weak on the front, due to only one leaf spring?? seems that its bound to happen with a loose tolerance gun meant to outlive the conscript using it for over a few hundred years ;)
good gun, just need to find some local ammo again so i can shoot deer.
