Military rifle redone with sporter stock. Argentine rifles are listed by size but going by the vintage my first guess would be a 7x57 (7mm mauser). that cartridge became very big around then and could be bought in many countries. Markings, signs, letters or numbers may indirectly identify it. whats it got?

Argentina used the 7.65 like the Belguims and some Turkish Mausers. Mexico and Venuzuala used 7x57 as their military standard a long time- lots of their rifles came here as surplus over the years. RN

Only markings if has are the ones that where there when made as in the 1891 Argentine Mauser and the serial number and that is it.

Yup, sporterized 91 Argie. I'd take a real close look at that bolt handle root/receiver area I was talking about. If the root isn't right down touching the receiver you'll have problems with the stud if it's there and even if it isn't, it can still give you issues.

If you've got it so it will work, it could just be a confluence of things coming together to create the need for a lightly longer FP. You seem to have solved the issue, so I'd proceed carefully and be alert for any indication of problems. Back when I had the gunshop I've had to remake more than one FP just a little longer to get reliable ignition.
Another thing I'd look at is I'd take the bolt back apart and soak the stripped bolt body in my favorite solvent. Then I'd use a screw driver or something to make sure there's no gunk down in the front that might be blocking the FP fall. As anyone who works on tractors knows, sometimes gunk can mess things up just enough to require a bit more power or fall to get things to work.

I did clean the bolt when it was apart and did my best to remove any and all gunk it had in it as per what Al in ARK had told me on the phone. I used carb cleaner spray and a couple of barrel brushes and some Shooter Choice copper removes stuff I have in my gun cleaning case which by the way is one of those fot by foot but 2 foot tool boxes where I keep my gun cleaning stuff and some other stuff that I have no clue as to what the parts are. Guess I should pull the parts and pieces out and take a picture or 2 and maybe you guy could tell me what I have
