  1. Stoeger M3000 Scattergun?

    The miss fire you are describing is commonly referred to as "Benelli Click" on this forum, and you might try searching the few posts that discuss the issue. Basically is seems the bolt isn't going completely into battery, or is bouncing back out of battery upon the bolt slamming forward then back out of battery. My M3K has done it once, with about 500 thru it without cleaning it, just a wipe down and lube when new. Went home and cleaned it thoroughly, paying close attention to the carbon build up around the lugs. I disassembled the bolt, cleaned it all and lubed with Lucas Extreme duty gun oil, and a light coat on the magazine tube. Since the cleanup I have put about another 200 thru it with no issues. The FTE issue maybe a slight hang up of the ejector. Some had a rough finish on the channel where the extractor rides in the bolt. Polishing with a jewels file, light sand paper, etc. seems to fix this issue. A few have switched out to the Benelli extractor,and spring because of the sharper profile of the Benelli part and heavier spring. Once again no expert or gunsmith, just trying to help you figure out the issue. Steve Rose or others might chime in and have a solution as well...
  2. Stoeger M3000 Scattergun?

    No expert, but you take the bolt apart and check the inertia spring? Some have shown broken inertia spring in the 3000, and switch to the Benelli Spring or just replace with another Stoeger one. Just a thought? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. .22LR uppers for AR-15

    I have a CMMG .22 dedicated upper that has been fantastic. It has the stainless bolt carrier, standard was out of stock and I was shipped a SS one for no extra charge. Ordered from Hamlund Tactical. I use all Black Dog Machine mags and literally can't remember the last time I have had a malfunction. I have maybe cleaned it 2 or 3 times in the many thousands of rounds (remember Federal 555 bulk packs for $15) that have been through it. Put a Primary Arms T1 copy on it and shoot the crap out of it, no issues. Been shooting the Federal Auto Match .22's lately since they have been readily available and they have run 100%.
  4. Any discounts for members

    Thanks Shooters Connection, great prices, service, and selection.
  5. Stoeger M3000 Scattergun?

    About 225 rounds through my new M3K today. 50 various deer slugs were dead on at about 75yards. 100 Winchester AA's 1300 fps and around 75 Federal bulk 1200fps. Zero malfunctions. I think I'm going to really like blaster shotgun stages now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Glock 34 Magazines

    Gideontactical.com has them in stock for $24.99 and $6.99 for shipping. Not cheap but in stock. This was formerly officerstore.com and I have ordered mags from them before. Also ordered from a sister company the firestore.com. Good folks from PA I think. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Dedicated .22LR upper issues

    Oops didn't realize they had a 32 rounder now. Haven't been shooting much.22 since you can't hardly find it now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Dedicated .22LR upper issues

    I have a CMMG 16" upper on a PSA lower with miss matched parts from all over. I have probably put 3-4k rounds thru it with very few failures (probably less than 10). I have tried just about every kind of ammo out there and everything has worked well. I have never "buzzed" the chamber, polished anything but the trigger, or honestly cleaned it more than a few times. Once last year before a Tac .22 match I ran a bore snake thru it and wiped down the stainless bolt then re lubed everything. Zero failures in the match using Winchester 333 bulk pack ammo. I have used the Black Dog Machine mags mostly since I built it. Ran a few CMMG mags thru it and functioned fine with those also. I did notice that you said you had 32 rounds from one mag function well. I have never loaded more than 27 or 28 rounds. My brother has about 10 BDM mags and never loads more than 27, some are probably some of the original ones made by BDM. He was a tester for them when they introduced new mags. He has 2 CMMG uppers and they both run well. My guess is over loading the mags has damaged the springs, since they are only supposed to be 30 rounders from the factory. They aren't heavy duty springs like in a 5.56 mag. I assume you were only having fail to feed issues, since that is what you mentioned. No light strikes, fail to eject, or stove pipes? For more info on dedicated .22's you might check out. http://www.ar15.com/forums/f_3/15_Rimfire_and_Pistol_Calibers.html there is a ton of info on dedicated .22's. ...hope this helps[emoji41] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Just registered, went smoothly even though I got the outdated browser message. #29 on the AM list this year after being #144 on the wait list last year. I still got in last year and had a great time. Thx for all you do Linda for this match. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. I hope this true. I was on the wait list as of last week but was planning on showing up with gear ready to shoot even if Linda didn't call/email. I emailed her last week letting her know I was a last minute guy, but I haven't heard from her yet, so hope I'm in?. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
