Remington 742 jam problem
Before I got your directions I installed it by putting the tab in first then popping the bottom section in. I oiled it up and worked the action until it seemed to freely move back with the bolt then took it to the range.
Of course I wasn't able to check the grooves to see if they were free of piece parts so i'll have to do that now, but on the first firing it twisted the cover out of the groove and it got pinned in the slot where the bolt handle gots and jammed her up tight again. (DOH)
I'm hoping it's not a piece of junk but this gun's seen it's better days, and old KHoupt might just be right.
Is there a way to tell that she's had it, or do I just give her a try again before taking it to a smith. Luckily I bought two of those pieces. I could reuse the one that I fired - it didn't get damaged just bent her a bit.
What do you guy's suggest.
