    Sorry to resurect an old thread. So i Finally got it back from the the shop with a new receiver installed and stuff. The guy claimed that it headspaces properly. I might have to pick up some 7.62Nato gauges just to be sure. The bolt is pretty tight when cycling the action though. What would be the best way to fix that? lapping compound? Stoning the high spots on the reciever till the bolt runs smooth? loosening the screws that hold the barreled reciever to the stock? I still have the old cracked reciever and bolt too.

    How does the old bolt do when cycling the action in the new receiver?

    The screws shouldn't have anything to do with it, make sure the ejector isn't hitting the bolt. Headspace shouldn't cause a sticky bolt either.
    I love you guys...

    It's really sticky. I guess I need to get a sharpie out and figure out exactly where everything is rubbing. I don't think it's on the ejector.

    In the late 90's I had a Navy Arms Ishapore 7.62 carbine that was sold at the time as a scout/hunting package.
    The weapon would not seat the round in the chamber without great force and then very hard to open.
    I cleaned and polished the chamber and tried some Spanish surplus 7.62 through her.
    Still had same problem, so I boxed it up and sent it back to Navy Arms and asked them to fix it.
    Called them and asked what was wrong with it, they said they could not fix it
    So they gave me a choice of M 96 Swede sporter package or refund

    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    Sorry, that experience soured me on the Ishy, so I took the Swedish Mauser and still have.
    Great rifle and I killed a bunch of deer with it

    Thats disappointing. I still love the Ishapore. I have an original that works great but when I saw the jungle carbine I just had to have it because I thought it would be perfect to run in my local 2 gun match in "Classic" division.
