Hi, I have a three year old Browning A-Bolt. While loading a round in the chamber it fired on it's own. No one was hurt but it was scary. I sent the rifle to Browning. They sent it back with a form letter saying it checked out ok. What would you do? Yes, I am quite familiar with firearms. I am a retired Marine.

By the way, I had submitted this problem to this forum before and many replies said I must have had the rifle worked on before this problem but that is not true. The rifle has never been touched by anyone, only about 60 rounds fired all with no problem. Now I have a rifle that can not be trusted.

I don't think that is possible with an A-bolt. When the round fired by itself the bolt was seated enough that it did not blow back. I then ejected the casing and there was nothing abnormal with that.

I talked with Browning today, the exact guy who worked on the rifle. He stated that there was nothing wrong with it. I am amazed by this response. At the very least they could have replaced the trigger mechanism. This according to my local "expert" would be the most likely area that malfunctioned. The bolt and trigger mech replacement would cover all bases.

But, they just shipped it home to me and told me to have fun.:(
