    Remington 710/770

    Basically built to last 1 (if you're lucky) season 
    My son in law has some cheap Remington design but it's solid, just sort of clubby. Shoots good though. I'm thinking his is something like a model 783 or something.

    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    Pure crap!
    Somewhere there’s a group gathering pitchforks and torches...
    Nah, he drank his own wine...  we’ll just wait till he sobers up...
    I knew there was a good reason. Stay outta the bum wine Jerm!!!

    Actually I knew better but the only reason I commented was to get you to spill the punch line. Then there was Wambi's explanation.

    I watched the video and took my mag apart, it looked clean and worked fine according to the test in the video but cleaned it anyway and wound it 2 and a half turns. We outside and it shot all 10. I will have to get her to shoot it again but it would appear to be fixed. Thanks for the info.

    Sometimes those 10-22 magazines just need a little tweaking. Glad ya got it running normal now!

    I know it's not QUITE what the Op had in mind, but my personal worst civilian rifle ever was a Century Arms reworked CETME...lasted one magazine.

    I had CETMEs and it worked great. Accurate, too.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.
