Bolt Jammed????

I have an auto cocker and I used it last summer ... worked fine. I got it out and the bolt is JAMMED in there... no broken paint or anything like that... I've never had an issue with this.... I was able to pull it out with some vice gripes but it will not go back in the gun... very odd... almost like the bolt expanded?

Any suggestions... sorry... don't know anything about cockers.... I bought this from a friend that needed money ... he moved away years ago. Could the marker need to be rehoned?

First off, what type of bolt are we talking about? Metal or Delrin?
If its metal, you need to oil it. If it is delrin it is probably swollen from paint that was never cleaned out and will need to be cleaned and allowed to dry. If it is still stiff a few swirls with some light sandpaper should bring it back to size.

Thanks... Derlin Bolt.. I really don't think it was due to paint. I am pretty anal about keeping my stuff clean... bit of a maintenance DORK for sure... I probably over service stuff...It was in a basement that flooded ... the gun didn't get wet but there was a great deal of humidity down there for sure but at least I know what to do.. I can get a new bolt if needed... thanks again.

for some reason wgp bolt likes to swell

simple fix would be to sand it down, only issue is it will be lose fitting when it's not swollen
