I bought this rifle with the understanding that it didn't feed and eject
reliably. I believe it was sold thru Wards and made by Savage or SpringField.
Well it doesn't feed or eject reliably when I pull the trigger repeatedly fast
like you would normally on a semi-auto. However if I pull the trigger, hesitate
for a second ,then release the trigger, the bolt will close, and feed and eject
all day long as long as I hesitate after pulling
My question is since it reliably shoots fine as long as I hesitate on releasing
the trigger is this the way it is designed to opperate for the bolt to stay open
untill the trigger is released? Operates fine like this: Load up the feed tube ,
pull the bolt back and release to load. Fire and keep the trigger held back for
a second, release trigger , bolt closes loading next round, repeat all day.
I doused the action with gun clean & lube and hand cycled it a bunch to
destribute the cleaner around and oil things up so I don't think it is gummed up
at all. It looks like it was hardly used by previuos owner.
Do any of you own this brand and does it operate like I describe? Thanks, rj
