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.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
