Help! Montefeltro Youth Carrier Latch

Recommended Posts

Loading into magazine of my son's new gun is tough than it should be. Rim of shell seems to catch excessively on the front end of the carrier latch. Looks like removing a small amount of this with file would solve problem.

 

Three questions:

Has anyone else had this issue?

How hard should it be to drive the pin out?

Does pin drive from bottom up or top down?

Just bought the youth gun for my son last weekend and have the same problem. I know the magazine spring is stiff, but I think the problem is the carrier latch. Did you find a solution? This gun may need to go back!

I had a similar problem with my 20ga Monty...I've been shooting Federal Top Gun and Game loads with no problems but last weekend I forgot my shells and picked up a box of Rio's...had all kinds of problems. I did have one box of Federal with me and after I broke the gun down and re-oiled everything I tried the Rio shells again...same problem as you described. I then shot the Federal box without incident.
