    Hello. I have a L461 222 and when I eject the fired case sometimes the bolt comes completely out. Not all the time. But maybe 1 out of 4 times. I have cleaned it really well and it still won’t stay stop everytime I pull the bolt back. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Blip....

    The bolt guide-rod is probably on the wrong side of the bolt.
    Remove the bolt.....rotate the guide-rod to the right side of the bolt, and reinstall.

    This rifle is so sweet. Too bad they don’t make the new ones with this much craftsmanship
