A friend and me bought a Ripley Elite each about 4 months ago from Wighill. Both our guns have now developed the same sloppy bolt action similar to yours. Mine was fine until one shot which was louder than usual and then it was all loose. Before that there was a very definite re-assuring ‘lock’ of the bolt when armed. My thoughts are that something has broken and it looks like a common problem. Did Wighill tell you how they fixed it or what went wrong?
