    Already an issue with CSBL

    So, I took a leap of faith and picked up a new CSBL this morning. I wanted to see if it would be easy to load through the gate and it is. Unfortunately, when trying to cycle the first round the action locked up. I can't chamber the round, it's stuck sort of midway between the tube and the chamber. Can someone please tell me what I need to do to free the action and prevent this from happening again?

    Thanks,
    Tancred

    I hate it when I do stupid things. Without thinking about AOL, I loaded rounds into the CSBL that I made for revolvers. These are significantly longer than the recommended max length. When I tried a round that was within the max AOL, no problem.

    Now days when I do something stupid, I blame it on "having a senior moment". Being older does have a few advantages.

    I hope you like your CSBL as much as I like mine. My rifle took a while to become smooth and easy to load but now it is. You may want to purchase some blue Loctite.

    I'm to embarrassed too tell about my last senior moment with a rifle. At my age they're actually super senior moments and the last one was a doozy.

    It's great when a plan comes together! Happy shooting.

    Use a plasma cutter to save the ammo. Buy a "JM'.

    Start by taking it apart eventually you can remove enough parts to get it out of there. Next time blame it on the dog, works for me.

    Yes---Never use red or it is permanent, Blue---easily removed, Green--oil proof and still can be removed.

    Loctite 242 is the blue medium strength formula.
