remington model 12?
Okey first I had to replace the extractor, ecxtractor spring and plunger and fireing pin (flat style) and all had to be filed alittle to fit or work properly or I think it is. It cycle's live rounds fine but when I shoot (rem balk 22 which I will never buy again miss fire's in every 22 I own) the case gets stuck in the chamber. Cleaned very well like I said live rounds just slide in and out. So the question is, What round should I shoot in this old of a gun? Or is this not the problem? Thanks for any info I looked at this gun not working since I was 5 and now 44 and am kind of proud I have it shooting again but want it cycleing while shooting then I will be done with it with a smile.

Sounds like it might have a bad chamber. You could still maybe get by shooting a weak load like CB's. Otherwise you would have to have a liner put in the barrel(over $100). Not that uncommon for an old rifle like yours.

Thanks for your reply's! I hope it's the lesser of the 2. And that is a good video from midway I just ordered the menck chamber ironing tool they had on the video it's worth a try and if that don't work when I get my lathe I might try to re-sleeve it Midway had a video on that to and don't look that bad to do.

I thought for 24 bucks then I got the right tool and i don't have a chance of takeing to much off. It will probly be another tool I will use once but I will have it if another one does come's up.

hope for a few more jobs. or let it be known you have it and rent it out.(with a 25.00 deposit)

Another good point! Forgot about that kind of stuff, use to rent specially tool's from a cycle dealer when I was starting out raceing dirttrack. Didn't think people did that anymore, but I would to bring back the old day's of trust in people.

If the ironing tool does not work a low cost solution might be to just sleeve the chamber. That way you don't have to buy the barrel liner or the special liner drill.
