This is what I’m thinking . . . .

How ‘bout removing the action from the stock, removing the trigger and sear, then trying to cock the action.

Might be, the high resistance you feel just at the end of the up-stroke of the bolt handle, is the nose of the cocking rod depressing the sear.

If the cocking is now smoother, then there’s your problem.

Good luck!

Hey Jim, tried that this mornin after reading...wasn't the case unfortunately. It was still rough so decided to lapp the cocking cam surface more and even hit the top corner before the notch with a file a little. The cam surface was terribly rough. It has smoothed out more now but still has authority at the end of the upstroke. It's just going to be a shooter so not real concerned about getting it perfect, and I really wanted to try re-activating one of these ol' girls. It's been a fun project! Thanks again to everyone!!

usually, heavy handle feel is a stiff spring,
lately,iv had a lot of wolff springs in rifles sent to me.
they need a monkeys arm to lift them...
swapping out with a G.I. spring usually cures that

This is out of my drill rifle...would they use anything other than a G.I. spring? Probably just n.o.s. with little use..? Thanks chuck, have any good tips on bedding..?..thinkin the rear tang, recoil lug and maybe a little at the very front of the stock. I might wait to do the front of stock until I see how it shoots. As it sits now, un-bedded, the barrel will flex up and down just a little. May be some down pressure at the bayo lug but not much.

I avoid bedding, as its not legal to use if you shoot CMP stuff,
make sure the rear guard bushing is in good shape, tight, and not sticking outside the wood too much,
should have a slight gap at the rear tang, and be chamfered.
shoot it first before you worry about barrel pressure..
