Leverdude posted a fix to it but I am not sure of the exact post .
That may be possible. A loose loading gate? Nope, I tried that just now, the gate is blocked by the lifter and cannot get under. I held the lifter with a screw driver, that didn't lock up the action, it just won't completely close.Leverdude said:I wonder if the loading gate is loose & somehow the lifter is stuck above it instead of under it like usually happens...
Did you try it?JBledsoe said:.
Good advice, LD. I didn't think of getting the screws in the wrong places.
I am sorry about my response to your post, I was having a bad day and had my panties in a knot.Leverdude said:Is the lever in the gun? If its not you could try installing it & seeing if it'll push the lifter down. Or try pushing the bolt in as it too should push the lifter down. I cant imagine whats holding it up.
If nothing else works just drop the trigger plate & try pulling it down, if that dont work remove the lifter screw & try again. At that point theres nothing at all holding it in.
