Love that! And you are absolutely right, 700s made before about 1992 or so have a bolt lock on the safety, good chance this is it.If there is a round in the barrel don't take it anywhere, have help come to you. A cartridge or an empty case in the chamber can stick pretty tight after a few months, especially if it got wet at some point. If the bolt opens and fails to extract don't use a cleaning rod on a loaded round! If you decide to hammer on the bolt handle do it gently, they break off rather easily and it will be cheaper to have a gunsmith unscrew the barrel then resolder the bolt handle. Try a good douching with Kroil or ATF, that will loosen things up if anything will. If you have no luck pm me. I have a few more tricks.
is the safety on? Some of the 700's would lock the bolt when the safety was on.
