Re: 700 REM-308,not working right??????
Thank you folks for the advice.
I fell like i figured it out? The magazine sides were out of the slot that it is to set down into,but tight! After going to the link that pahick,put in his answer and looking at some photos,it put some light on to the problem.
This problem started in 07,after i had a new barrel installed.Not right away,but after shooting it few maybe 75 rounds? Myself,not being a gunsmith,had no idea that a real gun repairman,would mess things up,but it happened!
Most likely ,to put the barrel on and set it,he had to take the mag apart and off the receiver.It did not go fully back into the slot and popped out after i had shot it awhile.
I worked on it yesterday,after i had seen scrape marks on the mag side,where it was to be up into the receiver. I filed it little,on the corners,not enough to make it real loose,but a snug snap fit. I got it back in and screwed down,put the gun back together and loaded some blank shells?
I can't remember when they went into the mag as easy and not popped out or nose dived into the receiver ramp
As Mfuff said,i'd been putting it back together right,but,my right was the wrong right???????
I shall try to get to the range this week and see how it works.Time is short,till deer season gets here.
THANKS YOU FELLOWS,for the help,
