    All,

    I was shooting over the weekend and all of a sudden I couldn't close my TMX. Do any of you have any suggestions of what I should do to first or what type of repair might be needed. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Bob Collins

    Look under the extractor where it closes against the mono block. Look closely for debris smashed so flat they are hard to see. Jimmy Borum

    Thanks Jimmy I'll check that out when I get home. It seemed pretty far from being closed when a lot of resistance was felt. I really had to struggle to get it to where it still has a ways to go before latching.

    Thanks Bob

    I think the gun is shot out and you should sell it to me for $500. LOL, Bulge.

    I went home and really looked for anything around the ejectors and the monoblock. All I found was the back side of a primer. I have removed it and it seems to working fine now. Although it seems a little stiff cocking the gun, might be all in my head. Thank you all for your advise and suggestions. It was helpful confirming what was actually wrong.
