I bought a '94AE 30-30 from a coworker with less than a box of shells through it for $150 because he just didn't like it. It was Post AE but Pre-crossbolt safety. The lever safety is so stiff you have to really squeeze the lever closed to get it to fire and the geometry of the hammer/bolt interface was so off that when cocking it, the back of the hammer was forced into the frame forcing the bolt to flex up to completely cycle causing a very tight spot. I took care of that with a little judicial filing on the top nose of the of the hammer until it works smoothly now. But both issues should never been allowed past QC.
