    out in left field
    I guess this is the correct category. There is an old saying "No good deed goes unpunished." I shot my Super X last weekend and it wouldn't consistently cycle the bolt to feed the second shell. So . . . . what the heck, decided to break it down and clean it and check the bolt buffer. Disassembled i.e. removed forearm, barrel and magazine tube items. Pulled the trigger out and removed the bolt. Sprayed the trigger group and bolt with Remington gun cleaner and applied a light coat of Rem Oil.

    Put everything back together - and now the bolt won't stay back after I've pulled it rearward ! What the heck did I do. I have another Super X and took it apart to see what might look different. Didn't notice any detectable variations . . . so I'm perplexed ( and p.o.'d ).

    Any suggestions re: a remedy greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Did you change the buffer? If so did you seat it down all the way? A buffer that is not seated correctly can cause your problem.
