Josh17 - You've 'heard this' and you've 'heard that' - it's time to TRY it and then you'll KNOW.
Take the gun out of the car into the range and fire it. Don't run the action or field strip it, just take it out of the car and see if it fires. This is the best way to find out if YOUR gun works the way YOU want it to work. If it does, (and I bet it will) you're golden. If it doesn't then come back and tell us what went wrong and we can go from there.
