Hello to all and im glad i finally joined the group, I have been absorbing the knowledge for quite a while and i thank you all for your wisdom. I have a problem , i have an M-1a that i love and has worked flawlessly till this point, i have fed my rifle 2000+ rounds of surplus, commercial and hand loads without failure untill this point. I have never had any repairs or adjustments made to the rifle, have never replace the extractor with usgi extractor and now my bolt will not close all the way and extractor will not easily grab cartridge. I ordered some usgi bolt gut kits hoping that its all i need and hopefully anyone with similar experience feel free to jump in. Thank you in advance.
Cherrish that day my friend. I have done it with bolt guns upon occasion. Mr Coyote now hangs in my office so I can look at it every day. It was like a dream. First shot 1.5 low and to the right. Corrected up three left 1 for top group in green. Corrected down 2 and left 2 for second 10 round 1" group. My spotter was ready to have a coronary after the first group. I kept telling him to remember to inhale. After the second group in the pink, I think we were both ready to have a heart attack. It can be done, but not very often.
