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.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
