I thought I knew as much about Remington Rifles as there was to know but finally I am stumped.
I have a Remington rifle that I have had for some time and played with it, swopping stocks, mounts, triggers and anything else that would move.
Not that the rifle needed any of the changes, I did it purely for cosmetic reasons and for something to do if it was raining.
However !!! now I have suddenly met a problem with the bolt release either, not working when pressed up or sticking in the 'bolt release' position and still not releasing the bolt.
I have removed the slide that goes up and down in the slot of the action on a pin.
I have thoroughly cleaned it and the slot, checked the spring for tension and found nothing untoward.
I have looked at the trigger unit and cleaned the unit and blown it dry then checked the flat slide that protrudes inside the trigger guard and checked the other end to make sure it is 'bent' at the correct angle to fit in the 'groove' at the end of the slide, the bit that goes up and down inside the groove in the action.
I have compared it to the trigger unit one of my other Remington rifles and can see nothing different with the Mk 1 eye.
Has anybody else ever come across such a thing, or more to the point, can anybody else understand my situation from what I have written
All those Remington haters needn't bother telling me to throw it away or use it as a garden cane as I have used Remingtons for years and seen many others in use with good results, so have my own opinion of them and until I find something seriously wrong with them I will still love them
