In 1995 I was in Canberra and got to watch the police conduct a qualification for issuance of kangaroo license's . The condition of the rifles I observed was so bad the tools in the old junk tool box were in better condition. One of the people there complained his rifle wasn't shooting well and was going to poor oil down the barrel then shoot it to clean it out ! So stop you whining about something thats not a prob
Thats way over 100,000 rounds in half a dozen rifles . In the US the Across the Course National course of fire has 2 stages of rapid fire , and yes we used stripper clips to which I owe several trophies . As a licensed and schooled gunsmith I know how to take care of a rifle and in the course of firing in over 30 years only managed to break 2 old style rivet extractors , the new rivet-less was never broken !
John you have made some comments that not doubt keep getting repeated by persons as yourself . I would like to correct you and other's that keep repeating the message. I have won 5 US NRA national Rifle championships between 1990-1995 over a dozen US National Records , 4 international teams , on over 25 US states , in over half a dozen countries ,,, ALL WITH THE REMINGTON M-700 and the factory extractor !
