    I had similar issues. Silly question but I did it so I have to ask, did you remove the gas rings from your bolt?

    I had left them on and had a hell of a time pulling bolt back. Then I read the instructions again and sure enough states to remove the gas rings. Now itís butter smooth

I've already detailed this in an email to the guys up in Barrie, but it is a long weekend and I'm wondering if it might be something simple so I can fix it and go shooting this weekend while waiting to hear back from them.

    I'm having a heck of a hard time pulling the bolt back after firing. It gets kinda stuck and I have to use quite a bit of force. Once it gets past the first few mm, the rest of the way is smooth. It's smooth when the chamber is empty. Seemed to get worse as I shot more and after I got in about 60 rounds in, it was hard after almost every shot and it got to the point where there were a few times I had to use two hands to open the bolt to eject the round as I got to 90-100 rounds.

    It's brand new. I cleaned the barrel and chamber before taking it out for the first time, Any ideas? Not using reloads or + ammo.. Run of the mill Federal 223 XM.. Just nursing both my shoulder and I lost a bit of skin on my hand working the bolt. Is this a cleaning issue or something else? I would assume the gun is very clean because it is essentially a bolt action for the most part.

    Any tips would be great, otherwise I guess I'll have to wait for next week to find out what to do.

    I didn’t build my own rifle. It was prebuilt by MRA and comes fully built with its own MRA bolt assembly. I don’t have any issues pulling the bolt back with snap caps and it chambers fine and ejects fine. Even after the difficulties I experienced at the range, when I took it home and tested it again with snap caps, the action is smooth and chambers/eject with no stiction or difficulties.

    Somebody told me this might be an over pressure or head space issue, but I don’t have go/nogo gauges and I didn’t expect I would need to retest this type of clearance give this is an off the shelf factory built rifle.

    Other than that, the rifle has been great. The only thing that caught me unaware was the size of the fireball which shows up in the lower half of the optic I’m using and the deep bass hit and concussion from the short 12.5” barrel. The included muzzle brake really clears my sinuses and is very loud even with double earpro.

    I bought the same gun and after two rounds the muzzle brake went in the garbage,crazy loud and Ordered something else.the gun functioned very good at the start but now I have to push the charging handle forward every shot or it won’t chamber the round fully and the round won’t go off

    Did you contact MRA? I guess the best things about buying Canadian is that support and warranty is 100x easier than a US or international manufacturer. But I agree, the muzzle brake is crazy loud. That being said, the rifle has very little recoil and it's a bolt action so I'm not firing very fast either.

    I'm looking at TriggerTech triggers now I'm guessing the Maverick uses AR10 triggers, not AR15 ?

    Brought my gun up to the guys at MRA and had it looked at. They swapped out the extraction assist spring behind the bolt with a heavier spring. Looks like it was a weaker spring causing primary extraction issues. Got some trigger work done as well while I was there. Great service and fast turnaround. Now I have to wait for the ranges to re-open unless somebody has a wide open property up north I can shoot at while socially-distanced....
