Remington 700 BDL

I have a 222 Remington BDL. Currently the bolt release is not working does not push in and out to grip and release the bolt. Currently the bolt is out and will not go back into place it will only go half way and it gets tight.

Anyone know what the problem is?

born, try squeezing the trigger when you put the bolt back in the rifle. you dont have to push the bolt release to put it back in.

Sounds to me like it's dirty, take the gun apart, remove the trigger and flush it good with lighter fluid. Clean the action real good in the area where the trigger and bolt release mounts.
