    I have a savage MK II 22 cal bolt action. The bolt is hard to open and close when opening it is hard to raise the bolt handle all the way to pull the bolt back. When closing the bolt it hits a spot at almost closed and you have to push hard to get it to close. Does anyone else have or had this problem and what it needs to fix it ?

    Is this a new rifle or did the problem just start? I'd remove the bolt and clean and inspect the bolt and action.

    Inspect the bolt to see if its hitting the stock on open and close

    This rifle in a factory stock ?

    Had something similar on a Savage Centerfire. I had changed the stock and the screws were just a hair too long. Does it happen with the barreled action out of the stock?

    I reduced the torque on the action screws and it helped some. But have same problem just not as bad
