M1a1 Doubles In Semi
Posted 05 July 2004 - 01:20 PM
I took my savage M1A1 out to the gravel pit for some 4th of July celebrating and noticed that it doubles in SA mode. Also sometimes in
FA it strings another two shots of so after I release the trigger. What's up? Worn sear? Springs? I probably should Know this!
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks for the boards!

I'll try some factory ammo and see if it clears it up.

Firing “out of battery” is a term accurately used in locked breech guns and loosely used in blow back guns with fixed firing pins. It describes a discharge prior to the locking system becoming engaged or prior to the round being fully seated, respectively.
