Cartridge feeding and loading problem

Postby Vinitine » Sun Sep 30, 2012 7:16 pm

Hey guys hope you can help me out with this. I just took my 91/30 out this morning for the first test fire. I set in the stripper clip to load the rounds and they wouldnt feed into the mag. I removed them from the clip and tried to load them one at a time and still would not go in. It appears that the rim on the cartridge is getting blocked by tight fit between the chamber and magazine. I am able to chamber one round at a time manually. Anyone else have this problem? Maybe i did not reassemble the rifle correctly after cleaning. I am using the correct cartridges for the rifle so its not the ammo.
Thanks for helping out

Check to see that the interruptor ejector moves freely by placing your hand inside the receiver and pressing it to see that it moves out of the way when feeding cartridges:

From the inside, it should move outward. If it becomes dislodged or bound up, you will have the problem you describe.

A friend of mine's 91/30 had this issue, then it turned into a different one. You could fire one round then it wouldn't cycle. With some work bending the interruptor/ejector to straighten it out a bit it almost fully went away.

There is also one other spot to check and that is the stock. Please use snap caps when performing this test on rifles that are not on the range. don't want anyone hurt.

Load your snap caps with the action out of the stock. Do they load correctly? If they do check the area next to the interrupter on the stock to see if there is proper clearance for the interrupter to move out of the way when loading a round. IF not your going to need to do a little work in there to get it to clear.

One must remember that many of these rearsenaled rifles were not mated back with their original stocks. So there are some differences from stock to stock.

Thanks again for the assistance with this. I checked the interrupter and it felt like it was operating normally however i am going to disassemble it and check it more thoroughly.

Not sure if this helps but when i was at the range i tried loading up the bottom of the magazine. They went in and it secured but they would not feed that way either.

I will pick up some snap caps from work and run some tests this week.
Appreciate all the help guys

Be careful of rim lock, if you load the rounds improperly the rims will interlock causing a jam. Make sure that the top rounds rim is the most forward in the strip clip and each round is stacked in behind of the next one. Watch the video, he does it correctly. There are others on YouTube that are wrong.
Watch on youtube.com

Like he says.

josh smith does a mod to ejector that helps ease use of stripper clip use in mosin nagant rifles and carbines.

I have a Tula 1936 Hex and went to the range for the first time with some surplus ammo. I loaded the first shot manually and afte firing the bolt would not cycle. The bolt would stick part way up but would fully cycle to eject the spent round. I took it to the range master who bumped it with a rubber mallet to get it to cycle and eject the round. Thought it was a fluke so tried another round but the same result. Took it home and found youtube video on cleaning the chamber. Did that and tried to chamber a spent casing with the same result. Any ideas?

It's not a dirty chamber. Have you cleaned out the locking lugs on the inside of the receiver. If there is dried cosmoline there it can make it stiff. That or a bad ejector or extractor. Do you have another mosin to compare it with?
