Thread: Krico - 22lr Bolt Action

    Krico - 22lr Bolt Action

    Guys,

    We have some very knowledgeable posters on this forum, so if I may - I'd like to try and tap into some of that resource!

    I've got an old German built Krico 22lr Bolt Action rifle.

    The Rifle is great, and seems to shoot accurately enough for my needs with Eley subs but there are a couple of "niggles" that I'd like to try and resolve if I can with your help...

    a) Misfires... 1 in say 15-20 rounds will misfire.. This occurs with 3 different types of ammo, so I'm pretty sure it's a worn pin or bolt spring

    b) Trigger... The standard trigger is adjustable (sort of) but there is still a huge amount of travel, and I would ideally like it to be crisper

    Now my problem is... Hardly anyone (google included) seems to know much about these rifles, let alone carry spares!

    Can anyone point me in the direction of someone / someplace that would be able to assist?

    I could obviously sell it, and buy a more mainstream CZ etc - but as it owes me nothing (125) I'd like to hold onto it if I can!

    Thanks

    Contact Krico a friend in the US has just done so when restoring one of their semi auto rifles:-

    Arndt at Kreigeskorte in Germany

    Was what he said. I believe your talking about a two stage trigger.

    Thanks Brit...

    I will do just that.

    The trigger is not a set trigger in this model.

    Andy Allwood in Bracknell is keen on the semi autos.
    Worth a call to enquire.

    Not sett but two stage. The first is fairly light weight and long then it stops and once the pressure increases to it's break poitn the sear is then released. The Americans call it a military trigger the Lee Enfield from the ShtLe onwards had this type and mauser used it too on his rifles.

    Hello garyb,both myself & one of my shooting mates use Krico .22lr we both bought them second hand and they are both very different rifles in as much the actions and barrels are not the same,i was told Krico didnt make their own .22 lr so they bought in quality actions & barrels from other german/austrian (Steyr/Anschutz ) gun makers and fitted them into their own stocks & badged them as their own rifles,but i only had this as hearsay so it may be ********,my mates Krico has a problem that causes a weak strike when the rifle has been cocked for a while ! but if you were target shooting i.e shot after shot the rifle works flawlessly and he has also struggled to get info on his rifle,hope this has helped,cheers,lee

    I see what you mean now Brit... Just, I can't get along with it, and it dosen't seem to be as crisp as I'm use to.

    Ever pulled the bolt apart and cleaned it? In cold weather the problem of old lube is augmented and firing pin travel is severely impeded. ~Muir

    Muir...

    Good idea, I've got it all pulled apart and it's now currently sat in my ultrasonic cleaner.. it did look pretty "gummed" up!

    Could I also stretch the spring a little?

    Hmmm another missfire tonight, 1 in 6 - could of been the round, will keep another eye on it.
