View Full Version : 77 MII Sporter Action Question

November 23, 2005, 08:27 AM
Got a new 77 MII Sporter (SS/Laminate) in .308 and have only put one box (of the green) through it. Question is this: the bolt / firing pin assembly seems a bit loose in the action, both when it is empty and when it is locked and loaded. The bolt handle has more play when fully locked than other 77s I've seen, and the bolt sleeve seems to be a bit loose in terms of its connection to the bolt. I haven't yet disassembled it fully for cleaning and reassembly.

Any thoughts on this? Anyone have a similar action?
