    I was just at the range and my gun jammed.I have a S&W 22a.What happend was I pit a mag in and cocked it and the gun wouldnt fire our let me pull the rack back to clear.A worker at the range was nice enough to help.He took the gun into the shop and cleared it then brought it back to me. my question is what did he do so I know for next time?

    My only advice is to ask the range Officer or worker, what got done to clear the jam.

    Is it safe to take apart?

    Misfires are extremely common (especially with cheap rimfire ammo). Now what caused it to hang up is another story. I'm sure they just used a little force to clear it. I would let a gunsmith look at it if you're not too familiar with it

    The guy at the shop came back and told me it was probably the way I put it back together.I shot 200 rounds through it after shot like a champ!

    Hmmm...... There's not a whole lot to em. I don't see how it could have been put back together wrong but I didn't see it so I don't know. I would say in the future if it misfires again just be really cautious when trying to clear it. I've never heard of a 22 hang firing but I'm sure it's possible
