Remington 7400 won't extract spent shell

8 posts in this topic

I need some help, my Remington 7400 won't discharge the shell after shooting. The incoming shell ends up getting jammed into the spent cartridge and has turned my semi auto into a single shot. I've tried cleaning it, but I can't take the bolt out. Can anyone give me some suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Sounds like you have broken extractor or at least extractor related parts broken. This gun needs a trip to the gunsmith shop ASAP!

I agree with lawdog. Its possible to break the extractor. This happened on my dads 12ga. Take to a gunsmith.

Does it ripp the lip of the shell ouff ? If so it may need a GOOD cleaning. Mine just did that and it was an old shell but I cleaned it real well and got new shells and it seems to Work fine now.

Had the exact same thing with mine years ago. A 5 minute fix at the gunsmith. Like lawdog said, a broken ejector.

I have the same gun and had the same problem last year. I had the ejecter and all those parts replaced at the gunsmith...but still have the same problem..which I found out at the range. I lost faith in that gun and have since moved to a bolt action rifle. I would still suggest taking it to the gunsmith and having the work done. I have heard from others that its perfectly fine after getting some parts replaced. For me, after having it jam on me after getting work done...it gets no more chances. Good luck...hopefully a part replacement is all it takes for you.

did it just start jamming or has it for awhile? I heard exchanging the auto clip to a pump clip can eject the shells alot easier. maybe try that if it isnt the pin thats broken...

1 more thing to check on that rifle, do you have 4 shells in the magazine or 5? 5 will fit but will jam,as theres no room for the fired shell to eject. how do i know? dummy me i tried it..4 in magazine and 1 in chamber works fine

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!
