    I have read a few posts mentioning this J-Lock thing in assossiation with Rem 700's, and it seems that this J-Lock is undesriable. I am considering getting a used Sendero locally and there are a couple to choose from.

    What is this J-Lock? and what's wrong with it? and what years and models was it found?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    the J-lock was put on the bolt shroud of some remintons as a way to satisfy the anti gunners wanting another safety on weapons. You can tell if its a J-lock as it will have a small cylinder shape thing (with a J shapped cut out in it) sticking off the bolt shroud.
    The trouble with these is that the fining pin and spring fit on the inside is realy crappy and causes binding and other accuracy issues , its a simple fix by replacing the entire pin assembly with an after market unit from Gre-Tan or PT&G.
