I’m looking at a 73 SRC 3rd variation. It’s seen a few miles but decent bore and an honest gun with one issue. When cycling the action with the lever(first round) the dust cover only comes back half way. I have to manually pull it back where it will stay but first cycle it’s not working. Any answers why appreciated?

Rick,

If the bolt is worn and sagging or the extractor has been replaced with one that is not tall enough or the dust cover is worn or any combination can cause that.

Thanks Bob. Will have to get someone with a bit more knowledge to have a look at it.
