Re: Savage 99 Feeding problem
Thank you everyone for your inputs. At least for now I'm going to take the advice of not taking the rifle apart but will keep in mind what disassembly advice was given. There are three things slowing me down. First there's the fear factor. Also there has been one of those rubber buttplates put on and I'd have to imagine I'd damage it trying to remove it? Finally, and maybe I shouldn't have done this, I sprayed a little Liquid Wrench into the magazine area. Now the fourth cartridge put into the magazine which would have feeding problems almost 100% of the time will now only mess up about 10-20% of the time. Maybe just loading the magazine several times and then ejecting all the cartridges has made the difference. Or maybe the oil has helped somehow?
