    Bulged bolt stop and bolt

    Hi camp 9/45 aficionados

    Yesterday I recieved my Camp 9 with the mail. Dissasembled it, cleaned and oiled it roughly, replaced the brittle recoil buffer and installed the 21.5 pound spring before heading to the range in the evening.
    While installing the new parts i noticed that the bolt stop and the corresponding part on the bolt have been beaten up- both parts are bulged.
    The rifle shot good with the new parts, but the bolt didn't stay open after the last round fired with the original magazin installed.

    -What caused the bulging on the parts? (The old buffer wasn't damaged, only britle while installing)
    -Should I replace the bolt stop and let the bolt reworked- how?
    -Should I use the Camp 9 without the boltstop installed till then to avoid further beating/file off the bulge on the bolt?

    I found 1-2 users with the same problem online, but without solutions or further infos.

    Thanks!

    Most likely hard bounce back from a bad buffer with the bolt hitting the stop at a faster velocity than what the gun was designed for. I say this from other weapons experience as I am not versed with the Camp series gun. If a buffer is not 'buffing' the the bolt will bounce off the rear of the receiver faster than design intent. +P ammo could have the same effect. AC

    My guess is some one had the bolt stop in the manual up or partial up position and shot the rifle.

    It's a old model without the manual bolt hold open lever. The bolt stop spring seems to be in good condition. Or which manual up position do you mean?

    Mine looked similar, I just used a stone and some WD-40 to "file" it flat. Haven't shot it yet, but it cycles just fine...

    Mine looks pretty much the same and I don't use the bolt stop as a result. I treat it like my 10/22 that doesn't have last round hold open anyway.

    Sorry, I did not see it was an older bolt. The "up" position is on the later models. That said, can the old style bolt hold open be "partly" in the bolt hold open position?

    @mush: my fault! didn't mention it... I'm not fully into how the camp works. I assume the bolt stop only should operate when the mag is empty?

    @wolfsburg_de: did you remove your boltstop from the system?

    @RaSelkirk: thx, probably will to the same..

    Am still wondering how to solve the cause. Removing it completely might be the easiest and safest.

    Anyone who shoots a 9mm, pistol or rifle, should be aware that there is surplus military ammo on the market that is a hotter load
    than standard. It was designed to fire in open bolt submachineguns. Fired in standard 9mm it can cause metal to metal contact.
    Older 9s like the Luger can be damaged in very few shots. Very hard on guns with Alloy frames. I ruined a 39 S&W with French
    9mm back in 60s. I am only aware of this because it happened to me, and when I took it for factory repair / replacement I found
    out that the ammo I was shooting was to hot for pistol.

    I didn't remove anything, I just don't count on it locking back.
