    Working on this rifle for a co-worker.The action is locked up tight.Have it stripped down to receiver.I don't see anything obvious that would lock it up.I soaked it in CLP,then tried gently tapping the bolt with plastic tipped hammer and brass punch.It will not budge.The bolt will jiggle slightly, but that's it.Gun has been sitting in a closet for a few years, but there is no rust.Any ideas or info on how to detail strip one of these ? Am I missing something ?
