Sgt Posted May 14, 2004 Report Share Posted May 14, 2004 I took my Savage out for the second time since I got it. The first time seemed to work ok, with only a few misfires. This last time I took it for a test and it didn't do so well. It misfired every third round. I checked the primer on the spent round and found that it was barely struck by the pin. Sometimes the indention was irregular in depth and position from other dud rounds. When I disassembled it for cleaning, I noticed that the buffer pilot would set at a slight angle. When you cocked the bolt it would straighten out and go into the actuator hole, but you could feel the spring spirals meshing with the hole as it lined up. Iâ€™m not sure if that is normal operation or not, or if it had anything to do with my malfunction. However it doesnâ€™t seem to be a very smooth action. I changed the pilot with still the same results. I didn't have a new spring, but tried some old ones, still sits crooked. I wonder if the oiler bracket has anything to do with making the pilot to sit crooked. Help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
