Hey guys. I just mentioned it in passing on my post about all the problems with my rifle, but I have noticed that a lot of guys are having problems with a rough or gravelly action. Pull the bolt and look at the machine work on the slot the lever engages. Mine looks like it was chiseled by hand - a very shaky hand at that. I didn't request it, because mine is going back anyway, but you may be able to just send in the bolt for a replacement if everything else is to your satisfaction.
