SBE bolt rattle

I have a left handed SBE and have cleaned it many times before, but never took the bolt apart, just took it out. I just got done cleaning it and noticed a very noticable rattle that I don't recall hearing before.

Have any of you noticed this?

I lost my manual to disassemble the bolt is it difficult?

 

Thanks for your thoughts and comments.

That is a normal sound. It is the bolt head sliding back and forth. Funny how paranoia can work on a guys mind..Mike

 

 

I know that my HK SBE has a solid sound to it's bolt rattle while the bolt sound of my Vinci is very solid and a rattle sound is non-existance.

My guess is that you're hearing the inertia spring moving around inside the bolt. When the bolt/locking head are in battery, the locking head presses against the inertia spring, keeping it from moving around. When the bolt is out-of-battery, or out of the gun, the locking head is no longer pressing against the spring, allowing it to move freely.
