My buddy down the road has a stainless guide gun that locks up about half the time when we try to load heavy bullets. Still around 2.54 inches.
(Factory ammo) The follower only lets the cartridge move part way back and then locks up the lever. The whole thing has to be pulled apart. This is the second stainless guide gun that I have seen with this problem.
Anyone else have this situation?
Both that I saw were new out of the box rifles. One of my sons had a blued model and no problems. I personaly prefer the Winchester (John Browning) modle of 1886.
