Hi guys, picked up a sporterised Swedish Mauser 96, the action looks to be cocked and the safety is off, however, when I pull the trigger it the bolt won’t engage/fire and the trigger won’t move more than a mil or two. When the bolt is out of the rifle the trigger will move freely.
Help please!

Is the bolt shroud, which includes the safety, screwed all the way in to the rear of the bolt? It should butt up against the rear face of the bolt root when the bolt handle is up. When you pull the trigger with the bolt out can you see the trigger sear drop down below the sear/cocking piece raceway?
