Picked up the Lithgow mod 1 the other day - finally got a chance to shoot it. The whole rifle shoots pretty well, but there’s a bit of an issue with misfiring. Works 4/5 times.
Not a huge deal, seeing that you can cock the rifle without opening the bolt, but the firing pin doesn’t look bent of chipped.
I’ve read online that it could be a weak spring, or too much grease inside the bolt. Trying the easy thing first, seeing that the bolt has open cut outs, is there an easy way to clean the inside of the bolt and the firing pin spring? Ideally something I just spray in like canned air for the PC? Would like to avoid taking it apart.
TL;DR: Is there an easy way to clean the firing pin spring inside the bolt action?
