Adding link to my report of this bug on the other tracker: https://dev-heaven.net/issues/73512
This is a permanent stuck issue which can be reproduced by normal exploration behaviour. I recommend increasing the severity and priority of this. Also the reproducibility should be always.
There is another symptom of the mosin reload anim issue, I am noting here rather than making a new report as it is probably part of the same core issue: With a mosin on my back, loaded, with scope and tripod, whenever I log in to a server it does the bolting animation and makes the corresponding sound. This also happens when I go to the main menu: after the character preview loads the gun bolts itself and makes a clicking sound.
I would also like to note the number of dupes of this issue. This is the oldest and has the most votes so please IF YOU HAVE THIS ISSUE VOTE THIS BUG UP SO IT IS NOT CONFUSED WITH THE DUPES. I will list the dupes here but I recommend giving me relationship priviledges. I work in QA professionally and this tracker really needs some cleaning up due to searching failures.
Dupes of this bug:
This bug is clearly related to and possibly a dupe of #34
Also has another direct dupe: #2645
This may be a dupe of #87, the cause is likely the same, but a slightly different symptom is reported
