Try changing lube. I noticed the colder out the slower the bolt went back till I changed to Tech-T and it works fine now.

That defect is very rare, and should be the last thing you assume.

How old or how much have been shot through the current orings? Relube or use a new lube as suggested. It's likely an oring or two needs to be replaced. First one to check is the smallest oring that goes around the stem of the bolt.

I had the same issue before, and all I did to fix it was replace the 3 breech orings (since I didn't have the TechT sized orings available at the time).

Yes it does. It's a possible source of bolt return problems. Even if that oring goes bad, the right lube can compensate for it sometimes.

I feel like hater sauce causes leaks on DP markers. I experienced leaks using it, and I've heard a fair number with similar problems. All resolved by replacing with just about any other lube.
