R1 bolt release question, help appreciated.

Recommended Posts

I have the r1 in 300 win mag, love it and have had zero issues. When I first got it if bolt was locked back I couldn't pull the bolt release down without first pulling the bolt back and releasing tension from the bolt hold open.

 

Well after probably 200 rounds I can now pull the release down without pulling the bolt back first. I like the idea of not having to pull the bolt back to release and being able to just pull the release. But will this cause excessive wear on the bolt release and some day cause it to fail to hold the bolt back? Is this something I should avoid and just continue to pull the bolt back instead of pulling the release alone?:confused:

I would recommend first pulling the bolt back to releasing tension before to pull the release down.

Not doing so will cause excessive wear and as you say...some day cause it to fail faster as expected.

I have a new to me MR1 and for the life of me could not get the release to work and wondered of the darn thing was broken. I have fired it little but find it is pretty easy to just pull back and release the bolt.
