7600 slide action is tight

I have a 7600 carbine that seems to have gotten tighter in the slide action recently. Any ideas on the best and easiest way to fix the problem? Is it possible one of the rails bent?

There is no "X" in my bow!!

I suppose you have tried a lubricant?

Re: 7600 slide action is tight

The o-ring between the slide and slide tube probably broke. You have to take the slide off and replace it. Not a hard fix but lucky you caught now before the season. A very common problem with 760s and 7600s that usually ruins a few hunter's days per year.

If you can't take it apart...I still haven't tried to tackle the job with mine..

I put a drop or 2 of oil on the slide tube and work the action...one of mine got super tight one year..the oil "fixed it". Though I'm guessing it needs a new o-ring as was said...or maybe there was debris caught in it..it functions fine and doesn't rattle or anything..

Might work..worth a try..if it doesn't work you'll have to take it apart and it does not look completely simple..

I have tore the thing down as far as I can and cleaned everything. I agree though, replacing the O-ring looks a little more challenging!!
