Hooked Posted October 26, 2004 Share Posted October 26, 2004 Hi All, I have a new SBE II LH that I've put about 250 shells through - half target loads and half Kent Faststeel. On three or four occasions while shooting the 2 3/4 dram target shells, the gun would not fire, but would "click". At first, I thought that it was due to the light loads, but then it happened twice while in the field using the Fasteel. In all instances, it was the first shot, and the bolt was completely in battery. After the first failure in the field, I took the gun home and stripped, cleaned and reassembled the gun and bolt assembly. I thought I had the problem licked, and then it failed to fire again. Whenever this happened, the primer showed absolutely no sign of being struck. Is it possible that the firing pin is hanging up somewhere/somehow? The duck season has only started here, and I'd hate to have to send the gun back, so I'm hoping there might be a fix that I can have done locally. Thanks in advance, Brian Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
