XXII semiauto question
Are the bolt handles supposed to be loose?

They are a little loose and if you pull out and twist they can come out. They have a spring that pushes a rounded end rod into a detent. Similar to some semi auto shotguns. Made that way for takedown, bolt removal, etc. This info is from my Italian rifle and a few I have handled and messed with.

That's supposed to be a nice tube-fed XXII that you acquired recently. Got any pics yet?

HBoom, Thanks for the response on bolt handle. Here are a few pics. Bad light, but here it is. Gun is 99% condition. I bought it from original owner. Probably
wont be 99% after this squirrel season! If I use it hunting.

One can only get so much enjoyment just from LOOKING, but not shooting/using it:confused:. Good luck with the XXII. I hope to pick up a nice example some day as well.
