    Default Model 770

    I just added this to my collection,which includes a 300 and a 270, but the bolt is very hard to pull back---is this typical of a 770?

    More difficult than a 91?

    You don’t get them same purchase/leverage on the 770 as you do the 91/G3.

    Don't have a 91 so no point of comparison

    Congrats on a nice rifle. These sporting rifles are HK's greatest secret. With respect to your question: I have both a 770 and sl7 (same rifle, different stock and barrel length). The 770 is easy to pull back, but it is harder than a 91 or 93. With the sl7, it is harder to pull back than the 770. I found that what I was doing was making it harder to pull back the bolt head and carrier: I was not letting it bang or hit hard, I was pussy footing it and letting it softly engage. If you do this and turn the rifle over, you will see that the bolt head and carrier have a larger than normal gap, and this made my sl7 very hard to cock. I suggest field stripping your rifle, cleaning the carrier, bolt head, locking piece, and firing pin, then reassembling it and grease it up. I like using Wilson's Combat grease for the sporting rifles. Also check to make sure the buffer is in good shape and don't get grease or lube oil on the buffer. This is just my two cents and what I found made cocking the sl7 harder, but if I let it fully bang and engage, go into battery, it is easier to move the bolt and cock the rifle.

    Not sure about the hunting rifles.. but the 91 has a hole in the cocking handle.

    I create a loop with some paracord and tie that in there. Grabbing the cord makes cocking the rifle a ton easier.
