I number of years ago I purchased one of those Yugoslavian K98 mausers at a gun show when they were inexpensive. I shot it a few times but knew there was something wrong. While it chambered and shot well, turning the bolt and extracting the empty shell was a chore.

A gunsmith checked it out and said the head space was bad. I didn't really pursue remedies to the situation at the time, so I don't know what if anything can be done about it. He mentioned rechambering, whatever that entails.

I know there are some smiths lurking on this board. What can be done with a rifle with such a problem?

Simple job for a good smith! The Mauser action is one of the most copied and re-used actions around. The Yugos are not as popular as the German but parts are very plentiful.
If you are willing to put some money into it it could be a great shooter! ie new barrel
