Title: model 700 ml issue
Post by: buckblaster on Oct 11, 2018, 01:27:17 PM
Hopefully you fellas can help me out with this. I've got a Remington model 700 muzzleloader that shot every time. Cleaned it real heavy let the parts dry wiped them off and now it won't hit the cap when I shoot the first time. Lift the bolt and it'll shoot the second time. I took the bolt apart and cleaned and it still does it. Other than changing the nipple which I can't seem to find one within 50 miles I have no idea what's causing the problem

I saw a post on another site about this same exact issue. I guess it is a known issue and they said that Remington can fix it if you send it to them.

almost anytime a muzzleloader fires the second time and not the first its a cap problem, the first hammer fall seats the cap, primer, etc and the second the primer is set solid enough that it fires the second time. Id start there.
