    You make no mention of the rifle.

    I will assume Enfield as almost for sure. If bolt won't stay closed it seems more like it won't fully lock up. Did the bolt go back in correctly with the front piece that turns in the right position - nearly done up tight but not quite.

    The link given could maybe help.
