I'm building an LR in 6.5cm.Problem is the bolt will not stay locked back. I have one factory (Colt) and 5 others I've built. None of them have this problem. Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hummm.......never encountered that so I am clueless. Only thing I would suggest is maybe try another bolt catch, detent, and spring, and hope that maybe one of those parts that are currently in the gun are out of spec or something. confused2

I'm thinking it has to do with the catch not to spec. I'll try a different one and see.

my 6.5 cm broke the bolt catch, i replaced with one for 308 and it ran fine.i think this can be a problem area.
