Need Help - Remington Model 48 Sportsman
I picked up a 12 gauge Remington 48 Sportsman that Im having an issue with and would like to fix the old girl. My understanding that it is the same operation as the more popular 11-48. Semi auto that cycles from the force of the barrell pushing back into the reciever.
Here is the issue......
I bought the gun and gave it a cleaning and everything looks to be in working order. I took it out to shoot it using a #6 Winchester 2-3/4" factory load. It will fire the first round, eject the first round and chamber the second, but when you pull the trigger to shoot the second round it wont fire. If you manually pull the bolt back 3/4+ of the way and let it close back up it will fire. I repeated this a few times with the same issue at each attempt. Any help on possible solutions, things to check or look for would be great.
