Remington 760 ??

I absolutely love this gun. I have been using since 1972, I can't tell you how many deer it has taken in numerous states. The memories are countless, most of my deer hunting stories revolve around this gun.This year for the first time it may have let me down.
On the first Tuesday of the rifle season I saw the biggest buck of my life, it was an easy shot but somehow I missed, went to load another round but nothing, the clip didn't push the shell up! After recovering, I noticed that when locked my fore-arm piece is real loose. I hadn't noticed this happening over the years. My question is can this be tighten up? I have already gotten a new clip. Thanks!

It's breeding,training...and something unknown.

Re: Remington 760 ??

Thanks! After posting I was reading some of the other threads and noticed it mentioned. It figures it would go when it did!

Probably never happen again in your life, but why couldn't it happen on the range, not with a buck in the crosshairs !

Re: Remington 760 ??

You're right, and it wasn't only that, but I usually keep a free bullet in an open pocket for just this sort of thing.But not on this day!After missing, I tried twice to get another round in, the biggest buck of my life stood broadside 40 yrds away and I was helpless.It was like the perfect storm! This was a "huge" buck that almost didn't look real.

Re: Remington 760 ??

My 7600 you have to really shuck the slide in order to lock it up. My 760, that i sure wish I hadn`t sold, would almost slide into battery itself.I suppose the 7600 will slicken up with age?? I had a friend that cleaned His 760 clip with a screwdriver and rag and apparently bent the lips on it. Missed a Buck with it when the second round didn`t pop up. Took it to a Gunsmith who put it back in working order....

Re: Remington 760 ??

ron they was absolutly slamming the thing full force to get a round to "lock". it wouldn't do it,eventually he went to his house and got his old lever gun. i never heard what the problem was, i'm assuming the chamber was crusty

if you bought it, a trucker brought it

Re: Remington 760 ??

Reloads with stretched cases would cause that problem. Way too long they won't chamber, slightly too long they will do what you described. Just a possibility.
