Went to the Grand back in August. I purchased two Briley Action Closers. The guys at Briley did the install.

Went to shoot sporting clays and I got on station one and shot the first bird of a report pair and the second shell didn't follow into the chamber. Thought at first it was the shells but when I went to the car to retrieve my backup gun it did the same thing.

When I go home checked my duck gun which is also a 303 and no problems. That one didn't get a closer. Should I call Briley or take it to a local gun smith? I live in Ann Arbor,Mi any suggestions for whom to call?

Regards,

John

It has become a common problem with these aftermarket buttons. Angleport as well. What you need to do if you are capable is pull it out and take a flat file and remove some of the surface material that comes in contact with the brass on the shells in the magazine tube. In some of them it is a little too thick and simply needs filed down some. Problem is you need to install and shoot to find out if is enough to allow the second shell to release form the mag tube. Let us know how the gun looks after it jams. Is the second shell still in the mag tube or is it on the carrier? Is the carrier caught in the up position with the shell on it? They can also cause timing issues if they are dragging on the carrier and slowing it down.

The shell never comes out of the tube. When I push the button it clicks but the shell won't come and the carrier won't move either. I should have just left the gun alone and never had it installed on the two guns.

Briley,Did the work and you paid them to do it. They are the first person you call, if you can't get satisfaction then and only then consider another avenue. I don't understand why people don't allow the person who supplied a service or a product an opportunity to correct the situation, it's not fair to them or you.

Understand this, if you or someone other than the supplier of a service or product tries to correct the situation, then all bets are off.

John where are you located. If you are close i would be very happy to help. The button needs removed to file it. I take it from your post you are no where near Briley or any place they could take care of the problem for you.

This is fairly common had it happen to me had my gunsmith fix it and now we check them right away when installed. Only took him a few minutes to fix only happens on some of the guns but should be fired after installation. If you send the guns to Briley they will need the whole gun so they can shoot it but is a simple fix I would look for a local guy that installs closers and have him do it shipping 2 guns for this problem is over kill.
