Finally got around to taking my 1939 production M91/30 to the range yesterday with a few boxes of Russian SP and Yugo FMJ ammo. While chambering each round, and when opening the bolt, the action was extremely tight and difficult to work with both types of ammo fed through.

Inspecting the chamber didn't show any obstructions, and there is no unusual wear on the bolt head, extractor, or casings.
I cycled a few clips of ammo through my M44, and 1943 M91/30, neither had the same problem.

What am I overlooking that would cause this?

That would be my guess as well. It might also be the bolt needs to be cleaned.
I thought about those as well, even after having cleaned the rifle when I bought it. I gave it a thourough cleaning after the range, and it still has a lot of resistance to chambering a round.
