Little more info.

Pulled the Bolt and removed firing pin and extractors, put bolt handle back and put bolt back in. Stuck a round in and closed the bolt, the round would slide back and forth between the bolt face and chamber. Pushing the bolt forward removed most of the "free" space. Bolt handle shows little or no wear, but the boss where the handle seats the bolt forward looks terrible, almost as if someone had ground away at it. I believe it to be fixable, will give it a go. Also the hammer spring has had 3 washers added in, I assume they were attempting to make the hammer throw harder to get the shells to fire. Which I assume was caused by the huge headspace present. Regardless it seems to be salvageable, More to come...
