I recently bought a Rossi 243 riffle and it has jammed after firing the 8th bullet, how do I fix this?

This is only a single shot gun with a middle break, and I can't open it at all.

Remove the firing pin. The entire gun might have to be disassembled to get to it.

SOURCE: I have a 243 cal single shot that snaped when fired. Tried different ammo. still misfires

Firing pin is worn. It may make a slight dent in the primer, but not quite enough to press against the anvil inside of the primer, hence the misfiring

Talk to a gunsmith to see if he has any spares, or has the ability to repair the firing pin.

My NT65AB is double firing every 4th to 8th fire, is there an adjustment on the trigger?


Chris, you will have to check your manual to see if your make and model has adjustment. Double fire is normally caused by one of three things,
1. The nailer is not being held down with enough pressure when the gun is fired.
2. Triggers valve is leaking and not releasing fast enough for a single shot.
3. The pressure fire feature on the nose of the gun (if applicable) is faulty.
If adding pressure does not help, then it is most likely faulty trigger, replace it. For guns that use a press-and-fire system, the spring in the nose of the gun may be worn, causing the double fire of nails.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Simmons 3*9 22 MAG scope


Hi,
I bought one SIMMONS 3*9 MAG 22 riffle scope from USA last month in $54 and fixed it on my .22 riffle with proper instruction. When I shooted 2-3 bullets, its + sign is moved from actual target.

I made the target and + again in sync and after shooting 3-4 bullets, its + changed the position. After consulting with some mechanic, he told me the SIMMONS telescope is manufactured in China and its acuracy is not upto the mark. He was advocating me to buy bushnell scope for my riffle.

Now I am confused and not able to identify how to fix this + movement problem in my scope.

Can anyone please help me on this ????

Your reply is very much anticipated.

Thanks !!

Can't remove stock from Rossi single shot


Remove the butt plate (should be 2 screws), shine a light down the stock bolt hole to determine if you need a socket and extension or a long screwdriver. Use the appropriate tool to remove the stock bolt. Righty tighty, lefty loosey.

Do bullet proof vests provide protection against rifles?


Bullet proof vests normally provide very little to no protection at all against bullets fired from rifles (like the M4 carbine 5.56mm or AK-47 7.62mm). They only provide protection against bullets fired from all hand guns.

NR90AE Nails jammed how to remove


New user will jam the gun/ nails because gun was most likely not bump fired. Placing the gun then depressing trigger will usually cause double fire in the hands of new user. New user should practice on scrap lumber bump firing at many angles till they get the idea; or give them a training period with a nailer that has a single shot trigger (they may develop bad habits with single shot however).

I have a bushnell elite 4200 mildot you can get it 0 perfect shoot 3 to7 times it will move 1 to 2 inches left or right up and down stay perfect. gun has a fixed front bypod and fixed rear adj. rest...


Not sure what your asking, but I will try to explain what I think is going on. If you fire the gun cold (one or two shots) and you are on target or zeroed in. Then the more you shot, the point of impact wanders off center or gets worse. This can be caused by the receiver getting hot (warm) from firing, and tweaking the scope in the rings enough to move it. Another reason can be the bullets you are using Then also through a hot (warm) barrel. Bullets stringing or shot placement going up / down can be attributed to the hot (warm) barrel. As the barrel gets warm the diameter increases and gas from the powder will escape around the bullet in the bore and cause flame cutting. Flame cutting can/ will cause a decrease in muzzle velocity, which will string the bullets in a vertical line out at target range. Horizontal bullet placement is caused by sight errors (scope moving) or movement of the gun in the shooters rest, called flinching, or "pulling" as the shooter expects the gun to go off. One way to find out if this is what is happing, is to have a friend load the gun or not load the gun (single rounds) and hand it to you to fire. if your friend does not load it and you flinch thinking shes about to go off you have to work on that aspect of your control. Once you have that control issue out of the way you will see a huge improvement in your shot placement.Hope this helps Fix Ya up.
