    RPP Lever popping open

    I installed a new lever, which I love. However, I'm now having that issue where the lever doesn't want to stay locked in, it pops out too easy. What is it about the RPP lever that is different than the factory lever that would cause this? This is a on a .308MX.

    Thanks

    Pauly5:

    I bought an RPP lever and had the same issue you are having. I contacted RPP and was told that some levers are not bent/formed enough. They sent me a replacement that works fine. Maybe give them a call.

    Take care,
    Bob

    I recently had the same problem. RPP worked with me to determine the issue and it turned out to be a weak plunger spring. They sent me a new one free of charge and it works fine now.

    A little filing on the plunger to alter the angle will help it stay in place over the pin better as well. Sometimes they have too steep of an angle toward the point on the plunger and it allows it to slip back over the retaining pin too easily.

    Hi Pauly - Sounds like the plunger is having an issue. Possible the plunger/spring/pin installed from the factory lever need a refresh. Probably the spring. Send us an email and we can help. [email protected]

    Just installed a Large loop lever on my Guide gun. I had to order the 3 plunger parts from another vendor (you were out of stock on these items), but everything went together well and lever lock-up is excellent.

    Though I don't really care for the aesthetics of a large loop, the RPP's size and shape are much more agreeable to my eyes than others on the market, and most important of all, I am able to quickly get my fingers into the lever with a glove appropriate for cold weather.

    Function is the primary parameter and the RPP lever is outstanding in that respect. Workmanship is top-notch. And, the more I look at it, the more I think that, "It don't look that bad, after all".

    Great product.
