A coworker has an M-44 carbine for sale. I fired it, and the bolt stuck so that he had to beat the bolt against a tree to get it to open. The cartridge case was stuck in the chamber, and we had to use a cleaning rod to push it out. As one who knows nothing about Moisin-Nagants, I am hoping that someone here can give me a little insight to what is causing this, if it is a minor or major issue, and if it will require a lot of money and or work to remedy. I offerd the guy $100 before I shot it, and might consider offering him $50 once I find out what the issue is. Any help would be appreciated.
