So I finally got the Remmington Model 5 sighted in this weekend. I'm not much for a good marksman, but the little riffle shot some nice groups.

Anyway, ran into a problem: the rifle fails to load the last round from the clip. It hangs up. Sorry, not very descriptive, I know. But it happens only on the last round and I tried several different clips including one from a neighbor that loads fine in his Model 5. It seems that the last round from the clip does not get elevated enough to feed into the chamber.

Didn't really mess around with it to see what was happening and my next step is to really give it a good cleaning. Maybe I didn't clean it well enough before I started shooting it?

Anyone have thoughts for me to check?

Thanks, Andy

May just need some new mag springs. Good luck.

No, not the mags. As I said, tried more than one, including one that loads fine in another rifle.

Did give the bolt a good cleaning, but that didn't seem to help. I left an empty shell in the bolt overnight, and that helped. Tempted to do this for another night. Is this a bad idea? Okay to do?

I have no experience with that model, sorry. But I am very interested if your mags will do the same thing in your buddie's rifle....? Something to try maybe. Good luck.
