I have a 50 caliber black powder Thompson on which the breach seems slide forward and locks, is there a way this can be released so that I can opne the breach and put the charge in.


To be totally honest and I have been hunting with Black Powder guns for over 30 years way back before we even had the In-Line's we have today, I would continue to load the normal way by pouring the powder down the barrel then tapping your bullet in on top. Unless the instruction Manual for your gun says different. I have 6 In-Line Muzzleloaders but all my Breech Plugs are threaded so they screw in and non have any movement once tightened. My newest one is about 6 years old so I'm not up to date on the newer ones. Hope this helped. It's always to be safe when dealing with firearms.

I have a Remington rifle which is a 22 caliber octagon barrel rolling block type serial number J282433. Any info on this rifle would be appreciated.


Could use more info, such as markings on the barrel and or breach. The Remington rolling block type single shot goes back to the 1860'S. The first 22 calibers around 1888. The rolling block went through 8 changes. The different types or changes are where various pins and screws are located, size and shape of hammers and triggers. The New Model Number 4, made from 1890 - 1933 came standard in 22 cal. with a 22 1/2 inch Oct. barrel. It will have a small lever on the right side of the breach. Approx 50,000 of these where made between the years noted. You could very well have a model 1, 2 or a model 7, which will be rare if in very good shape as only 1000, No. 7's where made. Tracking the serial number will be hard unless you contact Remington.

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.

I bought a Remington 870 at Christmas time. The first time i shot it the shells are jamming in the gun. I took it home cleaned it and oiled it real good. Went and shot it again same problem. Either...


If the 870 is a Magnum model it should accept 3" shells. After making absolutely sure you have an unloaded shotgun, both chamber and magazine are empty, empty, empty, proceed with these few checks.

Assuming it may be a 2 3/4' model, have you double checked on the left side of the barrel near the receiver? There will be gauge and shell length stampings on the barrel. If you are jamming 3" shells in to a 2 3/4" shotgun you will get jams as you describe. Look at the empty shell casings if you have any and see if the shell appears to be damaged from the chambered and firing process. This could also indicate you have a improper shell length issue.
If you are shooting reloaded ammo make sure it has been properly re-sized, crimped and reloaded.
sloppy reloading of shotgun shells can cause jams as you describe. Improperly re-loaded shells can also cause leaks of bb's, (shot) in to the receiver and bore area.

Check for a loose bb. or bb's, (shot) in the receiver and chamber area. A lodged bb. in these areas will cause problems you have described.

Run your fingers along the barrel and visually check it for any slight bulge. If you detect or suspect a bulge do not shoot or load the shotgun until a gunsmith or the factory check the barrel thoroughly. If someone had loaded a 20, 16 or similar smaller guage shell in the chamber by accident and the gun was fired it will usually cause at minimum a stressed and bulged barrel. Many times a slight bulge in the barrel may not be visually obvious.

Most of the time if a 12 gauge shell gets loaded behind that one and fired you will have catastrophic failures, i.e. the gun can blow up and cause serious harm, blindness or even death in rare cases to the shooter. Shooters call this a "20/12" catastrophic failure. This type of accident is not to be taken lightly! this is why shotgun shells of different gauges are different in color normally.
Never ever, mix shotgun gauge shells in a pouch or box.

If you pump the shotgun too easily, (i.e. wimpy) it can jam up. Always pump, "rack" a shotgun with vigor. I'm not suggesting abusive action, just don't be slow or overly gentle with the pump action that ejects a shell and reloads the next one. Something related to this is if your action/slide bar is out of alignment or has become torqued out of it's proper alignment this will cause problems as you have mentioned. The action/slide bar is a long single piece of flat metal that is in alignment with the barrel and is attached to the front forearm of the shotgun. This is the flat piece of metal that actually makes the action open and close as you pump the shotgun. There is one on the left underside of the bore and forearm of the shotgun. When you pump the action you will easily observe it moving with your pumping action.

Check how the empty action feels to you. While dry-firing, (using an unloaded shotgun), does the action feel smooth or perhaps, gritty, sluggish, overly tight? If any of the later the you need to double check for debris, shot, excessive old lubrication, gumming of the action, a bent action/slide bar, etc. A normal 870 has a very smooth action.

Also, check the bore for any obvious nicks or obstructions that don't belong there. A good quality shotgun such as your 870 should operate best with very little lubrication. Excessive lubrication over time can cause gumming up of the receiver area. Also, improper lubrication products. Improper lubrication can cause problems you have described.

I am not a gun smith. I am simply an avid gun enthusiast. If you have any doubts as to anything that you observe while performing these basic checks on your shotgun, I strongly advise you to call the factory or take it to a local gun smith. Many gun shops will give your shotgun a courtesy check over and if you don't find a solution, many times they will within a few minutes. Do not be embarrassed to take the gun in to a gunsmith! Trust me, they will most likely treat you and you gun with respect and courtesy. Otherwise they won't be in business much longer.
If the gun shop fixes your problem make sure and purchase some shells and perhaps something else from them. We must support our small business firearms dealers and gun smiths

Hope this helps you!

Daisy Red Ryder BB gun won't shoot


1) **** the gun and look through the hole in the top, half way down the barrel.

2) You should see a BB loaded into this area.
- if no bb is present and you can see a circular magnet, then it is not loading.

3) if the bb is present and does not exit the barrel when you fire the gun, then the bb is deformed and will require the rifle to be dissasembled and rodded through the back side, forcing the bad bb out of the way.

4) If no bb or magnet is present through the hole, call daisy for a replacement. This indicates the shot tube has moved and will no longer load.

My daisy model 99 bb gun does not shoot bb's with any force.


Try shooting a ton of silicone oil into the oil hole on the side of the barrel and then leave the gun sitting on its muzzle over night, then in the morning with the barrel out dry fire it a couple of times and then try it. what this does is expand the leather seal and bring back air pressure. it worked on my 99, good luck

Gun will not ****, only shot three times


Are you trying to say it will not c.o.c.k.? (dang sensors.) If so, you have to slap the barrel pretty hard toward the front or tip of it. Hold gun firmly and bang that barrel good with the palm of your hand. It should then break open the barrel and be ready to load and shoot again.

I'm using a red dot scope on a mossburg turkey gun with a choke. I'm using the 3'' heavy tungston loads for longer distance shots. What distance should i zero in the scope at? 20 yards? 30 yards? 40 yards?...


I set my sights for 30 yards.40 yards is a long shot because you always aim for the head when hunting turkeys.Good luck with the Mossberg.I traded mine for a Remington.Still got a Mossy for a "loaner" or a backup gun for a client.The 3.5 magnums are simply too punishing to the shooter.
