WASR-10/63 Bolt jams up tight
I have this problem with my WASR-10/63, go figure
When I try cocking the gun with a loaded clip, the bolt carrier will stop moving and some part of the bolt jams up tight at about 1/4" to 1/2" from the fully closed position. It also jams on the ejection cycle in the same place, its right at the point where the bolt would rotate and unlock from the breech.
Anyhow, I looked the rifle over, and decided to do some swiss filing to the bolt. I took the bolt out and rounded the edges on most of the faces(the ones that showed wear mostly), runs fine now, cycles every round. I figured ahh no biggie, all good, that was then.lol
So months later I ordered a stainless steel bolt, real nice condition. well guess what
jams same deal, the bolt just wont rotate out of the breech most of the time, well not without massive force.
I'd hate to have to file/camfer the edges on a perfectly good bolt just to get this junker gun running smooth, plus I figure this isn't the correct fix.
Anyone run into this before? I'm at a loss to whats going on, to many edges with wear, no way to test to see if there in spec.
NOTE: Tested gun with a new bolt carrier, same problem.
Thanks for your time,
