Hi all new to the forum hope yall could help me out. I ve scoured the internet, nobody knows. I've got a Ruger 44 mag carbine (tube Mag). I've field stripped it a few times, never with an issue. However, This time after reassembly the rifle won't lock open. Meaning that when I cock it, the gun wont stay locked open. But not only that, it won't go back far enough for the bolt to even clear the ejection port. After about 21 times taking it apart to try to figure it out, I figured I'd ask someone. I'de like to think I'm pretty good with firearms. But I can't figure this one out. I really dont want to take it to a gunsmith because I'm certain it's something stuipid. Thanks in advance for any and all help I NEED to get this rifle back together, it's drivin me nuts Totally unrelated, but I was looking at this Advert for ESS glasses you guys have on here. I've been looking for some good rx ANSI glasses that look cool enough to wear all the time. work,rec,shooting. I was checkin out wiley x ..... but i've heard negative things. Any input? Looking for a oakley type wrap around style and i wanted to get transition lenses. If anyone has any personal experience or could point me in a different direction. Much appreciated.
