After shooting, while cleaning my Forester I found the bolt at the rear of the recycleing stroke seemed rough. After lubricating the bolt It still seemed to hang up toward the rear. I remembered reading somthing about a similar problem in a post on the site. " Check the action screws" sure enough after loostening the rear screw some, the action was smooth as it should be. Reason for the problem action screw too long !. Remedy loosten the screw a bit, but how much is too much? Does anyone know if a bolt die for that thread is available? I would like to grind the screw a bit shorter, but am afraid or ruining the threads on it. A 60 year old stock must have shrunk a bit in that torqued area and allowed the action screw to interfear with the bolt travel. Could possibly make a tapered ( cone shaped ) washer to go between the tapered head screw & the wood??
