I'm going shooting here with my friend here in a few days, and the M1 is acting up. After pulling the bolt all the way back (as if I am loading a clip), I push down on the follower to release the bolt to allow it to slide forward. it goes forward about half an inch, and gets stuck. I have to 'rack' the bolt back several times in order to get it to go back to the 'closed' position.

I am not sure if this is related, but a few weeks ago when I was at the range I had a few FTFs because the bolt wasn't picking up rounds from the clip. I'd have to rack the bolt back in order to chamber a fresh round. No problems with ejecting the round out after it's been shot, brass flies about 10 feet to the right and routinely bounces off of the wood stand to ping the rangemaster.

If you're talking about a Garand, then it sounds to me like you have a weak op rod spring.

It is indeed a "clip", an enbloc type.

IT IS A CLIP PEOPLE! YES, A CLIP!

That out of the way, I can say this. I analyzed the problem. The handle (to pull the bolt back) was a little loose for some reason.....weird.
