View Full Version : my mosin has a smoother action then my mauser

Is this normal for yugo m24.47 mausers? I thought mausers are supposed to be better made? but when the first inch and a half is coming under the bridge that the stripper clips are inserted into it takes alot more effort than it should. the gun is very clean and so is the bolt. i think il try polishing it,
any other suggestions?

I used to have a Yugo m48A and the action was pretty stiff.Seems to be a Yugo thing since none of my other mausers have that problem.Ive heard of people using lapping compound on the bolt to loosen it up or just sitting around and working the bolt over and over.
