Cycle problems

PostSun Jan 25, 2015 11:19 pm

Just was given my great grandfathers Mauser. Has all the components of wartime production except side to side lanyard ring. Serial number goes with a post war bolo 446970. Have replaced the springs, bolt catch and firing pin. Fire only 7.63x25 ammo. Had several rounds that the firing pin did not contact. The bolt also drags on the Hammar and does not always return. Any ideas what the problem may be?

Problem definitely not the firing pin or hammer. The bolt is not fully closing after firing a round. With a small assist it seats and fires. Not sure if the problem is cartridge follower/ magazine contacting the bolt slowing its return. Has a new recoil spring. Anyone have a similar problem?
