Rem 552 Speedemaster ejection issues
I bought a used 552 manufactured in 1981. There was a 22lr Shell stuck in there when I bought it. The case head actually came off leaving just a cylindrical tube. Got it for a song because of that...
The gun will not eject unfired rounds. I have renewed the xtractor (and firing pin) with no joy. It appears that the extractor does not grab the underside of the shell.
I have a spare extractor to play with now, but I was thinking of filing down the extractor groove in/on the barrel to allow a better purchase on the rim.
Anyone got any input? Am I going about this the wrong way?
It's a shame all of my guns sank with my boat last week...
Time to catch up.....like mayonnaise
