    [​IMG][/IMG] Just spent an incredibly frustrating few hours trying to get my 500 to cycle, after I took it apart to clean it.
    Could have done it a hundred times in the past with no problems, but this time the bolt would only go back half way without stopping solid.
    After about 20 times taking it apart and putting it together, I finally discovered thst the pin that the hammer rotates on had moved sideways about 2 mm, and was jamming the cartridge stop bar.
    Simple when you know, but was driving me nuts...
