View Full Version : Anschutz bolt advances

May 13, 2002, 05:21 PM
What to do about an Anschutz .22cal bolt action rifle whose bolt sometimes advances to the fired position when chambering a round ?

The gun was made by Anschutz as stamped on the left side of the receiver but has a CIL 125 stamp on it so I'm not sure of the Anschutz model #. The stock appears to be of beech and the gun is rather plain though it shoots well.

Anybody heard of this happening before?

the striker goes forward when chambering? As in fires on chambering? Then check sear and nose on firing pin.

Or, if it's a cock-on-closing action, does it close without cocking? Then check sear and nose on pin, they're not engaging. Can be a trigger problem, like a return spring being weak and failing to push sear fully up as bolt passes over. Just my guesses.
