712 not going into battery
« on: February 12, 2017, 03:49:20 PM »
I am looking into buying my friends 712 setup for 3gun competition.  When firing it at yesterdays match first shot would go bang and cycle but not fully go into battery for second shot.  the gun would stop short of complete battery almost at the point where the charging handle on the bolt group needs to be to be removed during disassembly.  Cannot figure out if it is the bolt group hanging up or a week return spring.  this issue does not happen when manually cycling the gun with no ammo in it.
Ammo does pass the plunk and spin test. AA super sport sporting clays 2 3/4", 3 1/4 dram eq, 1 1/8th oz, 7 1/2 shot, 1300' velocity.
