I bought a used Ruger MKII .35 Whelen. It really shoots nice. That is when it does not go "CLICK". I have 2 separate boxes of ammo. Both are factory load Remingtons, bought different places, and they have different weight bullets. It does not matter which box, the results are pretty much the same.
I know enough to be able to take the firing pin out of the bolt and cleaned it all thoroughly. I used a magnifying glass to look at the firing pin itself, and can not see any problems from one end to the other. As it was cold out, I did not relube any part of the bolt assembly to preclude sticking.
I went back to the range and the same thing happened. I put the gun back in the warm truck in front of a dash vent and thoroughly warmed it. Right back to the bench and the same thing again.
Some folks point at the firing pin, some the head space. Has anybody had the same issue with a Ruger MKII? Could it be anything else?
Thanks guys. (and gals)
