Old faithfull went down today.

Post by brreed82 on Sun Dec 05, 2010 1:51 pm

So we were working on the gadwalls pretty well this morning. I had fired several shots, and everything was going great. We had to move out of the nice heated blind to get where they wanted. Once we got the boat buried in the phragmites we bailed out and tucked up next to a couple of muskrat huts. ccharactor Damn it was nice, birds droppin in like lawn darts right into our massive spread of 4 decoys we quickly threw out. A nice bunch was gettin' right, we drew down and i fired once, bang....pulled the trigger again..nothing! Troll

when i went to asses the situation i could hear loose metal in the receiver Suspect Apparently the setscrews on the ejector were loose and had grooved the metal on the receiver enough to come out.

Part #28 <-----link

Fortunately i had already lined up a trade with one of the local police who moonlights as an armorer, a few hunts for a duracaot job. I think all he'll have to do is drill out the holes a bit more to get the set screw a little deeper.

So hopefully it should be an easy fix. He's gonna blast it and get the base coat on tonight. Hopefully by Saturday she'll be throwing steel again with a new look. Ill post some pics when i get it back, its going be painted "Bart'o'flage" with a polished bolt. Yehaw

Later,
Brian afro

what sucks worse is the fact it was in a hunt.....

I hate that ready...... aim..... click...... that makes me crazy....

I used to have an old Mossberg, that I said a quick prayer every time before I pulled the trigger.....

I always wanted a bennelli

Ya, but what really suck was that i decided not to bring my video camera. It would have been a perfect opportunity to get some good footage.
Dude, its been a slaughter here for the most part...and we only stayed out for another 45 minutes or so anyway...life is still good! afro

Hate to hear about the mishap.... I can see you leaning forward and stumbling almost falling in. Man that would have been cold!! It is 27 degrees here right now.

Sounds like your having a better season this year than last year. I finally got me a 12 gauge Rem 870 express super magnum... So far I like it. No water fowl for me to shoot here, but it should do well for deer and turkey....
