    Savage Springfield Model 187

    I have a Springfield 187 that I inherited from my father... It hasn't been shot in a long time.. 15-20 years. I know that when we shot it though, it jammed like crazy... Does anyone know what kind of .22 ammo I should go with? Any other suggestions?

    Peace,
    Chad

    Savage Springfield Model 187

    Once those guns start to wear it's very hard to get theim servicable again without replacing every single feed-related part. Start by taking the barreled action to an auto shop and dunking it their parts washer for a while. After a good soak, blow the action dry with compressed air. Place a drop (1) of oil on each pivot pin and then try it again. Accumulation of gunk and improper oilings (my dad was a big on on adding more oil to an already gummy works) can cause a lot of failures to feed/eject. Good luck. ~Andrew
