    while I was cleaning a muzzle loader, the wire brush broke free and is now stuck in the barrel. The rifle is a side lock, so i cant just push it out from the other end. Any ideas?

    The members on this forum have helped me resolve a couple of firearms issues already, so I thought I would contribute with some "how to" advice. I recently purchased a 1974 Colt 1911 that had been a safe queen for over a decade. The gun is in excellent shape and functions well, but when I tried...

    I'm loading 45ACP with a Hornady LNL with Hornady's seating die. I'm using 200gr LSWC bullets. It goes up into the die fine but when coming down, it's getting stuck. It does come out eventually and the reload looks fine and it even chambers fine. Does anyone know what's causing this? Too...

    Hello, hoping some one can shine some light on my new 870 issue. Basically if the gun is pointing up, the action gets locked in open position. This is regardless if I'm cycling it with or without ammo. I can hear a click when I point the gun up and the action just wont release. No matter how...

    My buddy just did a barrel swap on his ar and on the very first shot the casing got stuck in the barrel. It's brass prvi 5.56 ammo and he hasn't had a problem before changing the barrel. He kept the old BCG just swapped the barrel. He was able to get the casing out when he got home and hasn't...

  16. Pump [Shotguns]
    When trying to cycle rounds, the follower gets stuck in the magazine tube. I had to manually pull the shells out through the ejection port. When I unscrewed the magazine cap, the spring popped out (I was expecting it to be under pressure) but it squirmed out in a tangled mess. My guess is...

    I have a 20 gauge 870. Sometimes when I rack the pump its been getting lodged in the full rearward position. Possibly overriding a stop? Any ideas? Or am I visiting bob at country?
