Pump rifle problem

4 posts in this topic

I have a 30-06 pump rifle and once in a while the shell gets jammed as it doesn't not come out of the click completely. I have changed the clip, but it still happens.

I have used other pump guns (shotguns) for many years with no issues. Any idea what is wrong with the rifle?

Your not getting to excited and short pumping it are you?? I have had that happen when I shoot my 870. As for a rifle I use a bolt so not much help here. Sorry

Is the gun clean? My other suggestion would be a bad clip, but you addressed that. I have a Remington .270 pump. I cannot pump it like I can my pump shot guns. It just isn't as smooth.

My 30-06 Remington Carbine had that happen not too long ago, but mine was from the clip. Some rust had formed on the springs, so I blasted some WD-40 under the plate and it worked well after that and I haven't had a problem since.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
