Tac 15i cranking issues and bolt turning out
Well, after reading all the positive feed back about this unit, I took the Plunge! I picked one up 2 weeks ago. The local Pro shop had one set up already, and thats the one I got. Well after getting it home and going over all the material do's and don'ts ect... it was time to shoot a bolt. I shot several and wow, pritty impressive. I had a harder time then normal cranking back my last shot, about 2/3s of the way back it seamed like a binding feeling. I shot that bolt and I heard somthing hit the floor. I looked around and found a bolt. the bolt fell out of the right hand side of the receiver, it connected to the the string crank. the one on the oppsite side was still snug. Well I reinstalled the bolt, double checked all the bolts on the whole unit again and nocked another bolt, I shot several more with no issues. I ordered all the goodies for a upgrade, dropaway rest, optimizer of the scope,timney trigger kit,silencing hardware for the trigger and a set of quad limb silencers! Everything came in yesterday except for the trigger. Today I started to paper tune and after several shots it got hard to crank back again.The bolt fell out of the same place while cranking it back! I tried putting it on safe and would not go, tried letting it back down no luck. I had to fire it instead. found collar split in half were the bolt goes in to the receiver. sounds like a lemon to me!!! I took all goodies back off and away it went. Still waiting on a call. Is there anyone with a similar problem?
