And the solution is?I’m not familiar with the SSG, but is it possible the lugs are locked into the locking recesses, and the firing pin is forward? That the action was closed & cocked, but the bolt handle has been bashed so hard that the rifle action has fired & the mainspring released?
It’s hard to put this into words, but could the action now be uncocked with the locking lugs engaged.....
First give everything a good wiggle, then get a bit of thin oil into free things up in case there is a bit of corrosion.
WD40 dries leaving a gummy sort of residue. So do a number of rust prevention preparations. Personally I like god old 3 in 1 or similar light machine oil for lubricatioon and moving parts, but Rangoon oil (which does leave a film) for use on barrel surfaces etc.Can believe it. The bolt was stuck in with a rust coloured gum. It just wiped of with some wire wool.
cant remember what type of oil I used before. Must have used something that dried leaving that residue.
Love it. I bought a litre of it a few years ago and now I have small bottles of it all over the place, in the Garage, in the Shed, in my gun cabinet and even in my wardrobe.What do you reckon to Blasitoil
Same (not the Germany bit tho)Love it. I bought a litre of it a few years ago and now I have small bottles of it all over the place, in the Garage, in the Shed, in my gun cabinet and even in my wardrobe.
I was introduced to it in Germany a long-long time ago and have had a ' Relationship ' with it since.
