HI guys,
I've just got a second hand Mark V and I've noticed a slight binding sensation when the bolt starts to move forward.

I seems to be in the section behind the bolt head/lug area.

It's not really bad and the bolt closes ok but it does take a bit of force. Ditto on opening.

I lubricated it but it made no difference.

Everything else seems to be fine: trigger operates as normal etc.

Probably need to take it to my gun smith to look at but thought some one out here may have an idea.

cheers

James
