View Full Version : Extraction problem model 7600 Remington
I have a model 7600 slide action Remington that has been giving me trouble extracting cartriges. The problem first showed up when I used it to kill some primers in reloads that I had pulled the bullets from. It's like the bullet is sticking in the chamber making it difficult to work the slide.

I'd give the chamber a thorough scrubbing. Sounds like you may have gunked up the chamber blowing off primers. Use an oversized brush (like a 20guage shotgun brush) to get in there and give it a good cleaning. Let us know if that doesn't clear up the problem...

Syd: If the problem shows up popping primers only, I'd say that the lack of recoil is the problem. The cartridge is being driven into the chamber by the force of the primer ignition while the primner is probably being backed out a bit at the same time. The other thing to look at is whether or not the brass (the "reloads") were from that rifle. Slide guns aren't very tolerant of even slightly non-spec ammo, or ammo that hasn't been full-length resized.
If the ammo was from that rifle, then I'd suspect the primer is driving the case forward and itself back, making extraction less than slick. Follow PMI's advice about degunking your chambers. If you fire live ammo and the extraction problems go away you'll know what the problem was. Good luck! ~Andrew

I had the same problem with the same gun last weekend. I was out deer hunting and I couldn't chamber a round. I got back to camp and cleaned out the chamber and presto-chango, problem solved!
