Win. M100 autoloader in .308 won't fire.
My son-in-law inherited a Model 100 Winchester rifle from his father's estate.
It won't fire. I believe those rifles had a firing pin problem that was under recall at one time? He's a very busy guy and hasn't had a gunsmith look at it
yet. Anybody have one of these rifles? Does it need to be sent off somewhere or can most competent gunsmiths diagnose the problem and fix it?
I know it's hard to comment until we have someone look at it. Just wanted to know if someone knowledgeable about this model knew what common problems might be to blame.
He also has a lever action M88 .284 in excellent condition, original magazine stamped .284Win with the stock and bluing in nearly unblemished condition.
I haven't looked up the serial#s for dates of manu. for either gun. Don't know if it fires---don't have any ammo! Any info would be appreciated.
