You can get a lemon, even if everything looks fine. A close friend came over with a 16 ga. bolt action Savage that he ha just inherited and wanted to try out. The first round in the chamber fired when the bolt closed, we tried to make it fire again with nothing in the chamber but it was hit and miss on that. After taking it apart I found that at some point in time the safety switch had broken and someone had brazed it back together.
You just can never tell about older stuff, Bubba is everywhere.
