Re: Mossberg .22s Anyone?
Hey Everybody. I just joined today but am glad to be amoung small bore rifle enthusiasists. Recently I purchased a replacement clip for my 640KA chuckster. Of course it required grinding down of the magazine guide post. When I took the screw out that holds post to the bottom of the bolt or action, What looked like a bottom piece of the bolt with a hole for the screw i just removed, fell out and landed on the floor. I am not a gun smith/mechanic by any means. I did not remove the bolt but managed to slide the piece that fell out back into place and replaced the modified guide post. After oiling and replacing the stock the bolt action seams to function the same as before. I have not fired the gun since. Can anyone advise me on whether what I encountered is normal or a sign of a malfunction. I am driving through lower MI on the 16th and may try to stop in to the Cabelas in Dundee and have someone look at it and repare if necessary. Just thought I would check with the real experts first.
Thanks for any comments.
