Some times when i pull back the bolt it gets stuck. where the bolt all the way back and will not go back in. It is full upgrade using the part list from Livonia (thank you livonia be the way). Also i used silicon oil every where. Which bring up another question should i use silicon oil or gear oil

Yeah, the spring guide stopper sneaks its way out at times, especially on the zero trigger from laylax. I put a little bit of tape underneath (on top of hole where spring guide stopper can sneak out of), and it keeps the spring guide stopper from being able to come through the hole.
Obviously looks a little sloppy in the pics, but it was a test to see how effective tape could be. I have used rubber bands and other mods to fix this problem, and the tape works the best.
And I use White Lithium Grease on my cylinder unit, as well as the cylinder itself. Makes bolt pull nice and smooth. Can be found at True Value, Home Depot, etc. for cheap, as well as a large quantity.

On a side note. I almost broke my finger because of the bolt got stuck and when it did come free the spring lunched the bolt back in, and my finger got in the way of the bolt. fuzzywolly
I am trying to picture your situation and let me see if I got this right. As you cocked the rifle, it got stuck all the way out? Then when you tried to push it back in, it was stiff and would not budge, and then all of a sudden it slammed back into the receiver? This is when your finger got stuck in the way of the bolt and the receiver, almost breaking your finger?
Not trying to sound sarcastic or anything, just trying to make sure I understand what happened.
If what I said above is correct, then I am guessing that the spring guide stopper had popped out while your cylinder unit was pulled back out by the bolt handle (to cock it). This caused the bolt handle to get stuck and the cylinder could not be pushed back into the receiver, unless you used great force. I am guessing that the pressure caused the bolt handle/cylinder to spring back into the receiver. Therefore, with the spring guide stopper in, this problem should not happen again. The tape has worked for me, and it should work for you.
