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

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
