Okay a little problem.....

Postby kiwismakebetterhunters » Fri Apr 28, 2006 10:02 pm

Duckshooting opening is next weekend and I dusted some clays today with my escort magnum to get my aim in. Problem is that 1 out of every 10 shots I had a missfire. There was a dent in the primer but the cartridge didnt go off. Has anybody had this problem before? Perhaps my pin isnt hitting hard enough? Maybe its the ammo? :help: :help: :help:

Hmm well i dont know much but if it was every tenth shell and it was repetative like that it probably was the gun.

I had just brought the ammo so theres no reason that they would be damp.

I would strip it down and completely clean it, maybe some crud built up in it and not letting the firing pin go forward enough. if that doesn't work try new shells from a different place maybe the shells are just new to you, been on the shelf or a while

I had a problem somewhat similar to that this past season, but I doubt its the same as yours. It took me two hunts to figure it out, but I was being cheap and didn't buy some new lube when I ran out. I used grease on the moving parts of my plastic stamped-out benelli nova cause browning was taking a break. When it was still really cold and the sun had not come up, the pin wouldn't strike the shell with full force because the grease was sooo thick from the cold. but it would shoot just fine once it warmed up. now i feel real stupid, but you gotta learn sometime.

Kiwi, when my Browning Gold misfires the way you described, it is due to unspent gun powder in the trigger mechanism. I take the trigger mechanism out and spray it clean with "GunScrubber". It is a gun cleaner that comes in aerosol can.

Gunscrubber takes alot of the oil off so make sure and re oil your trigger.

Having barely any oil at all inside of the trigger grouping can cause malfunctions too. I had some misfires in my SX2, and discovered that any amount of oil in the trigger group, or in the bolt, can cause misfires, spray it with gun scrubber, and let it run dry, just oil the action grooves.

It is most likely the shells. I had some steel federal loads do that. I thought it was the gun. I was very mad, and I saw that the primer was dented. I put it through a different gun and still CLICK......Get some better shells, or just a different box :thumbsup:
