    General Gun Discussion
    Hopefully someone has an answer for this! I have a mosin nagant carbine (im pretty sure its an authentic soviet production model) and the bolt will sometimes slide completely out of the receiver without holding the trigger down. The gun fires fine, but this bolt problem is annoying. I suspect...
