Re: 6000 round savage

well i am sorry to say that this gun is nearing it's end, with a round count over 9500 rounds posibly 10000 the the trigger will not hook back up with the sear any more. it is still grouping half decently but you have to pull the trigger 6-10 times to get it to go off.
thanks for watching
there is always something to learn

Re: 6000 round savage

sounds like a good disassembly and cleaning time, see if you can get it running again.

Re: 6000 round savage

+1 on the breakdown and clean up. I'd bet all you'll need to do is clean the funk out of the trigger and you'll be back in the game. I've been running a similiar test with an older Ruger 10-22 and thus I'm very interested. The Ruger started to jam quite a bit after 3k-4k rounds, but still fires everytime. I have had to oil it a couple times, but thats all I've done. I've got a buddy running the same test on a Marlin bolt action, he's around 4k rounds without anything done at all (he does keep a little knife handy to pull cases that get stuck, but that's it) We both bought the guns used at about the same time. Before we started our little test we both stripped and cleaned both guns so we'd know we were starting at about the same point. Keep us posted!
I like things that go "bang"... I love things that go "BOOM!"
